Taking Stock in the Past for the Future

After reading and discussing an article reflecting on the Stock Market Crash of 1929 nearly a century later, learners are then divided into groups to analyze five articles from the week of October 28, 1929-November 1, 1929. They conclude by writing a journal entry about the event from the perspective of either an investor, stock broker, news reporter, or another key person from the time period.
