I am giving this powerpoint away for a great price in order for you to view and use and give me some feedback. This is a steal!
This is an 84 slide powerpoint covering The Great Depression. 20 of the 84 slides are "quick check" and "turn n' talk" questions that will keep your students engaged and allow you, as a teacher, to informally assess your students along the way.
There are 8 embedded videos that are linked to Youtube on topics such as The Stock Market Crash, FDR's Programs, Fireside Chats and more. When you see a movie reel, click on it and it will link you to a VIDEO!
Words are bold and in red in order for teachers to call attention to KEY TERMS and VOCABULARY!
I have included clipart in the powerpoint along with real life pictures to allow students to try and engage in a meaningful way.
In this powerpoint I cover or mention the following topics in this order:
What is The Great Depression?
The Roaring Twenties/ Jazz Age/ New Era
Bank Failure and seizure of property

TERA- Temporary Emergency Relief Agency
3 R's- Relief, Recovery, reform

In addition, I have included a study guide that directly coincides with the PowerPoint. It is broken into 5 parts in order to break up your unit study- Part 1: The Roaring Twenties and The Crash, Part 2: Life During The Depression- FDR vs. Hoover, Part 3- FDR’s Programs, Part 4- he Dust Bowl, Part 5- Final Acts and War. I have also included an answer key for each section. Use this as a study guide for the whole class or as a means of DIFFERENTIATION!!
