In class March 31/April 1 – Hey President Hoover!

It’s me – The guy in the White House when the Depression started!

You have heard some of the basics about the Depression – the stats are pretty … well … depressing, right?  What did the President at the time do in response to the economic crisis?  you watched a brief overview of Herbert Hoover’s response last night, but let’t get into a little more detail by interviewing the 31st President.  Each small group will get a specific question and have a few minutes to construct a response based on Hoover’s ideas and actions. Please check out the links to President Hoover , The Bonus ArmyHoover’s Last Stand, and “President Hoover and the Failure of Conservativism to Ease the Great Depression”,  the videos “Welcome to Hooverville” and “The Bonus Army”, and the “Life in the Bonus Army” scrapbook below.
