After our long weekend off, we started out today with a quiz over Chapter 26. After the quiz, we tackled an analysis of two "Fireside Chats" by Roosevelt detailing his early plans for addressing the Depression. After analyzing the broadcasts, we looked at a selection of letters written by average Americans from a broad cross section of the political and social spectrum.
Tomorrow we will explore the reaction of the press to the Fireside Chats. Tonight you need to complete the analysis questions on your handout from today's class using the "Fireside Political Cartoons" posted under the Skill Block Files under Period 7 of the website. Chapter 27 is also due on Thursday!
