New Deal Poster Project

 The 1930s were dominated by the Great Depression, which affected virtually every aspect of American life and caused ripple effects throughout the worldwide economy.  President Franklin D. Roosevelt launched ambitious programs to speed economic recovery.  Congress passed a wide range of relief legislation as part of the New Deal.  The New Deal dramatically increased the role of government in American life.

 Your project is to research these New Deal Laws.  On Thursday March, 10 and Friday, March 11 we will go down to the library to research your program.  This may require you to do research and work outside of class!

I want to know anything and everything that you find out about the law.
