Product Description
This skit / script was created with an 11th grade US History course in mind, but could be used in high school World History as well as middle school. Students act out the skit (multiple students -- 12 -- needed for this skit) and do the learning without teacher involvement (just observation).

This skit is made up. None of these things were truly said, but they are historically based off of actual history. The skit describes and helps students understand the New Deal, Hoover's view of the Great Depression, Eleanor Roosevelt's involvement in the White House, the issues of the Great Depression and Franklin D Roosevelt's use of the Black Cabinet and the debate / problems revolving around African American, women and other minorities' labor issues during the Great Depression.

This is a great activity to simulate the issues revolving around the Great Depression and truly gets students involved. The kids tend to enjoy acting it out and getting out of their seats. This is a great review or introduction to the content listed above.
