Over the years I have tried a number of stories and movies on the Great Depression, but my students could not relate to extreme poverty. That was until I made them enter 1933 as an employee with a family and bills to pay. Once they experienced the Great Depression, they had a much deeper appreciation for living in the current time period as well as a much clearer understanding for those who lived through the 1930’s.
