  • Discussion topic for block day: How effective were the responses of the Roosevelt administration to the problems of the Great Depression? How did they change the role of the Federal Government?

We talked about Keynesian economic theory and the Hoover Administration’s response to the opening stages of the Great Depression.

  • How do you account for the different reactions to Hoover and Roosevelt’s programs and policies given Rexford Tugwell’s admission that “. . . practically the whole New Deal was extrapolated from programs that Hoover started?”

Make sure to have read pages 770-785 for Tuesday.

Students took the Industrial Revolution test and turned in the I.R. packet.  On Monday we will start a unit call “The Changing World” which will deal largely with the themes of nationalism and imperialism and the impact these had in various parts of the world.

We graded the study guide for chapters 31 and 32. I then described six causes of the Great Depression: tax policies favoring the wealthy, overproduction (or underconsumption), high tariffs, speculation in the stock markets (aided by buying on the margin), over-expansion of credit, and drought in the Mississippi Valley.

For Monday, consider the Hoover Administration’s efforts to combat the Great Depression.

Students put together and turned in their Industrial Revolution research projects. We reviewed briefly the lifestyle changes that accompanied the Industrial Revolution, and well as the impact of transportation improvements. We also reviewed the impact of industrialization on child laborers through an examination of the photographs of Lewis Hine.

The Industrial Revolution test will be on Friday. Check back here shortly for details.

  • The test will have 20 multiple choice questions and 5 pictures to respond to with short essays.  Each picture corresponds to one of the 5 categories we have been looking at: political, economic, environmental, social, and technology.  You will need to be able to describe what you see in the picture, how it relates to the Industrial Revolution using specific vocabulary and examples, and what happened in response to that issue.
