America Makes A New Deal

October 12, 2018

The American History II students have been studying the unit on the Great Depression.

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s solution to the Great Depression was a series of programs  called the “New Deal”.  One assignment for the students was to study and research the different programs. The students worked with a partner and selected one of the eight main programs to research more in depth and make a poster/slide advertising the importance, and convince the public of the necessity of that program. The students then presented their slides to the class explaining why we needed that specific program. The

New Deal programs were a main factor in resolving the problems caused by the Great Depression.
