State Standards: In this unit, students will examine how the Great Depression was ushered in by the stock market collapse
in the fall of 1929. The election of 1932 and Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s administration seemed to provide hope through his
New Deal programs. Students will examine the range of potential solutions to the growing economic problems of the United
States during the 1930s, including those compounded by the environmental disaster of the Dust Bowl. Students will
evaluate the effectiveness of the New Deal programs over time, including their effects on various minority groups in the
United States.
