Activity Overview


The election of 1932 proved to be pivotal during the events of the Great Depression. By analyzing and investigating the campaigns and ideas of both candidates in the Election of 1932, students will be able to better understand the election results and the hope FDR instilled in the country with his New Deal initiatives.

Using a T Chart, students will compare and contrast the policies and political selling points of Herbert Hoover and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. They should be sure to focus on their backgrounds, economic policies, proposed initiatives, and philosophies. Teachers can choose to add additional topics for students to cover.


Extended Activity

Have students further analyze the “Great Recession” of 2008 by comparing and contrasting the policies and ideas of Barack Obama and John McCain. Have them analyze the initiatives each candidate put forth to solve the issues of the recession and how they compare to those put forth by the candidates of the Election of 1932. This will build connections to current events.
