These Great Depression reading guide questions are from the sections of Don't Know Much About History titled "Why did investors panic in 1929" and "What was so great about the Depression." This can be an intro or wrap up activity for the Great Depression. Students can read two short excerpts from DKMAH and answer the 10 questions in this handout. Depending on the students it will take a whole class period or a class period and then they finish it for homework and turn it in the next day. The answer key is on the last page.
