Class Experience

Students will learn about the causes of the Great Depression.
Students will understand what life was like for people around the world during the Great Depression.
Students will make connections between the end of the Great Depression and the beginning of World War Two.
I have an undergraduate degree in History and a Bachelor of Education with special qualifications in History. I have specifically taken courses regarding the history of the 1900s and the Great Depression. I am willing to answer any questions prior to the course about what students can expect if they are concerned about the sensitivity of the topic.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- 'The Twentieth Century and Beyond - A Global History' - Goff, Moss, Terry, Upshur, Schroeder 
- 'Great Depression: Black Thursday, Facts & Effects' -
- 'Great Depression: Holocaust Encyclopedia' - United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
