Introduction to FDR's New Deal: Reading & Processing Activity
About This Product
During the 1930s, the United States was facing a lot of problems. Many people were out of work and didn't have enough money to take care of their families. The country was in a very difficult time called the Great Depression. To help the country recover, President Franklin D. Roosevelt came up with a plan called the New Deal. The New Deal had a lot of different parts, but the main idea was to create jobs and help people who were struggling. One of the ways the New Deal created jobs was by starting programs that hired people to do important work, like building roads and bridges. The New Deal also helped farmers by giving them money and tools to improve their farms. The New Deal also created programs to help people who were having a hard time. One program was called Social Security, which gave money to people who were retired or couldn't work because of an injury or disability. Another program was called the Civilian Conservation Corps, which helped young men get jobs and learn new skills. Overall, the New Deal was a plan to help the country recover from a very difficult time. It created jobs, helped people who were struggling, and set up programs that are still helping Americans today.
Teacher-prepared notes show students what is important and how ideas relate, and offer a model for how students should take notes themselves (Marzano et al., 2001). This product comes with an introductory reading into FDR's New Deal. The product then has students process the three R's: Relief, Recovery, and Reform (comes with an example). Ready to use. Excellent for review.
