Read Aloud: Chapter 15

Today, we transition from World War I into the periods of prosperity and depression that often define the 1920s and 1930s. We will learn more about these periods of economic growth and decline, how they disparately affected farmers and immigrant workers compared to the wealthy, and both the short- and long-term impacts of the Great Depression and New Deal. Presenters: Chelsea Egenberger and Erin Voichoski, Civic Nebraska School Community Coordinators
