US History and Government Examination: June 2011

Those who lived during the Great Depression could clearly draw a line between the roaring 1920s and the desolation of the following decade. Class members examine these two periods and compare them using an essay question prompt and primary source documents. Other activities feature the history of key Constitutional amendments and how they changed American society.
