Connections to Today: The Great Depression & The New Deal
Title: Social Studies Connections to Today: The Great Depression & The New Deal
Description: At the end of March, Congress and President Trump passed the CARES Act, to help Americans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic on our economy. It is the biggest act of its kind in our history. We’ll examine another historic series of programs, the New Deal, and learn how it affected Americans during the Great Depression and how we’re still feeling its effects today.
Connections to Today: The Black Death
Title: Social Studies Connections to Today: The Black Death
Description: Throughout history, humans have experienced pandemics. A little over 100 years ago, World War I devastated much of Europe, and the Spanish Flu followed. But centuries ago, at a key time in our world’s development, Europe experienced The Black Death, or Bubolic Plague. We’ll discuss how the Black Death changed the course of history, and what may happen after COVID-19.
