what were the 5 causes of the Great Depression? Which do you think is the most important? Why?
What is Rugged Individualism? Why did Hoover fear using too much of "Government" to solve the nation's problems?
I can survive on my own just fine because I'm a rugged individual!
Hoovervilles! What were they? What was like like in a Hooverville?
1.) stock market crash, 2.) bank failure, 3.) reduction in purchasing, 4.) policies with Europe, 5.) Drought conditions. I feel like Stock Market Crash is the biggest one that lead to the beginning of the Great Depression because it was what originally started it. Everyone wanted money so they invested in stock then no one bought it from them leading to the crash.
President Roosevelt's New Deal - What was it?
Rugged individualism is when you're self reliant and independent. He didn't want people to be so independent that they didn't need him anymore and they still had to rely on him.
President Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights - What was it? What was included? Do you agree or disagree? Why?
We need another Bill of Rights Mr. President.
Hoovervilles were little towns made from discarded things like glass, wood, cardboard, and paper. They were built by people who had become homeless due to lack of money. It wasn't the greatest to live in a hooverville.
Do you feel the New Deal was a success or failure? Defend your position with specific examples.
The new deal was like a second bill of rights made by Roosevelt. It had other things he found necessary to try and lift people out of the Great Depression.
The Second Bill of Rights was made when he realized that the original new deal still didn't have enough to pull people out of the dumps of the great depression.
I think the new deal was a success. I mean even if it wasn't the soul cause that pulled us out of the Great Depression it still helped quite a bit.
