Welcome to 7th Grade,
US 20th Century History!

Throughout the year, we will learn about the "good, the bad, and the ugly", recognizing that even with all our ups and downs, what an AMAZING country we live in!

As in Unit 1, we will continue to provide you with a brief synopsis of the main focus of the unit, so you can engage in family discussions at home around the topics we will be learning about in class. In addition, check for files that will include helpful documents such as study guides, class activities, assignment grading rubrics, etc. Occasionally we will also add links that may provide some fun and useful additional information.

Don’t forget to check the monthly calendars for test dates and other important events!

It is now the 1930s and a Great Depression has hit the United States and much of the world. We will be learning about the "domino effect" of various events, beginning with the Stock Market Crash of 1929, which led to and worsened this economic disaster.

Students are completing a 1930s Picture Notes booklet with the help of Power Point slides, video clips and other visuals, 
textbook readings, and class discussions. Students will learn HOW to take notes and will include colored pictures/illustrations to help them remember the key points. This will be the main grade for the unit, checked at weekly intervals, so it is very important that students keep up and do not lose their booklets!

See the document folder below for the Power Point we are using in class.
