This week has been spent on the Great Depression and New Deal. Monday, we discussed the material from Chapter 31. Specifically, we discussed the U.S. retreat back into isolationism and the naive idealism that shaped U.S. foreign policies through things like the Kellogg-Briand Pact.
Chapter 31 was finished by Tuesday, so had a reading quiz (You know that's what Type 2's are right?). I then lectured on the Causes of the Great Depression. Students were given a handout with the slides, I've included the PowerPoint below.
On Wednesday, we watched the FDR Presidents video and then students did a practice Blind 15 minute analysis period on a New Deal DBQ.
Thursday, we finished discussing the New Deal documents and students had a Type 2 over assigned pages.
Friday, we finished the week with a blind Long Essay.
Remember that Chapter 32 needs to be finished by Monday and that anyone that misses today's essay is expected to make it up on Monday. Have a great weekend and next week we head right into World War II>
