Product Description
This activity was designed to address ELA Common Core Learning Standards in an 8th Grade Social Studies lesson. The primary source excerpts come from the 2007 NYS Grade 8 Intermediate-Level Social Studies Test, http://digitalhistory.hsp.org/bnktr/essay/soothing-peoples-panic-banking-crisis-1930s-philadelphia, and an excerpt from "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck, but the text-based questions were created by me and are modeled after typical NYS 7th-8th Grade ELA Assessment questions. I believe this activity will provide an excellent supplement to any lesson about the problems and solutions of the Great Depression by getting the students to read like historians and approach historical events from multiple angles and voices.
