This activity meets the curriculum standards for Ontario, grade 10 CHC2D (Canadian History from the 20th century).
Can be applied to other Canadian history programs that examine R.B. Bennett and the 1930 Election/Great Depression. It's a good way to introduce to your students who Prime Minister R.B. Bennett was.
Students are to listen to a podcast (free and available on the web and in the document as a url). As students listen, they will answer questions.
