Today we started off with a Quiz over Chapter 26. We then explored how FDR "sold" the New Deal to the American public, specifically through the use of his Fireside Chat radio broadcasts. We then examined the response of the general public and the media with some primary sources.
Tomorrow we will begin discussing the background and causes of WWII and its ties to the depression. Chapter 27 is due and don't forget that Friday you have your next Scored Discussion, this one over the use of Atomic Weapons at the end of WWII (Remember, we are skipping the new deal scored discussion! Make sure you are doing the correct readings!).
