We explored the Great Depression today by looking first at the causes behind the economic collapse then completing stations giving us a peek at the human toll of the Depression. We then explored Roosevelt's response to the Depression and how he sold his approach to the public. We ended the day with a brief reading outlining the differing historical interpretation of the New Deal and its success in an essay by Alan Brinkley to give you a framework for encountering the reading selection for tomorrow's scored discussion over the reading selection from Howard Zinn.
Scored discussion and Chapter 26 tomorrow, LEQ on Friday, and the toughest week of the course in terms of workload will be past! We only have three more weeks of new content then we review for the AP exam!
