Your blog for this week is fairly simple. Your assignment is to find a total of 3 primary source documents that demonstrate the effect of the Great Depression on families, workers, businesses, government, etc. You may find a picture that depicts city or rural life; a political cartoon that discusses how the government dealt with the Stock Market Crash or Great Depression; a newspaper article that discusses an aspect of either the Stock Market Crash, Great Depression, or Dust Bowl; a poem, story or other form of art that depicts life during the Great Depression, etc. Please provide a link to each source, briefly describe each and identify the historical theme(s) that is addressed (GRAPES), then select one of your primary source documents to reflect upon.
Your response can include your opinion on the issue, how it may have made you feel to live during that time and deal with the same problems, what role you think government should have played and why, a connection to a modern-day event that has had a similar effect (ex. housing crash led many to leave cities and migrate to cheaper areas with more job opportunities), etc. Please keep in mind the minimum length requirement for your initial post.
