The Great Depression/ Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

What was life like during the Great Depression (1929-early 1940’s)? How did the experience of white Americans compare to that of black Americans? Learners tackle these and other questions in a unit that focuses on the Great Depression and the novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Partners use the Internet to access photos (“America From the Great Depression to WWII”), interviews (Federal Writers’ Manuscript Project), and almanacs to gain an understanding of this period and to provide a background for their reading of Taylor’s classic novel. Included are day-to-day plans, a worksheet, quizzes, activities and rubrics.
