The Great Depression vs. The Corona-Virus: Compare and Contrasts

Crystal M Chambers, M Ed.
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(91)
Students will analyze the social, political, and economic impacts of The Corona-Virus compared to that of The Great Depression.

Class Experience

Students will learn what effects of Corona-Virus are similar and different to the effects of the The Great Depression on the United States.  Students will learn that their direct and in-direct participation in the Corona-Virus is valued as a primary source. 
Corona-Virus vs. The Great Depression is offered because as a retired History Teacher, I see an opportunity to teach students the skill of connecting past history to current events. This is an opportunity to bring "History Alive."  Much of what is currently going on with the Corona-Virus: rationing of food, closing of  businesses... occurred during The Great Depression. While students are out of school this is a golden opportunity for them to return well studied and versed on the responsibility of being citizens and the lesson that history can and may, in fact, repeat itself at any given time.
