The Great Depression and the New Deal

The Great Depression devastated everyone who happened to be involved in it. It started during the late 1920's to early 1930's, sweeping over the nation causing huge effects to everything. Life became a lot harder due to the Great Depression. It started when she stock market had crashed, people who had once been millionare's now had nothing. As the stock market crashed, it had a dominoe effect on everything else in the country.

The New Deal brought up many questions, a couple of which being what the limits were for the Supreme Court and President and what the people of the United States should handle on their own. President Roosevelt tried dealing with many of the issues that were involved with the Great Depression. Many people thought that he helped to end the Great Depression, but there were also many that thought that he wasn't helping at all. Within the New Deal Program, there was Roosevelt's fireside chat's, legislation was passed, and many other things. There was many people that thought that President Roosevelt too advantage of his position as President and did things that were unconstitutional during the New Deal Program. Though, many other people dissagreed and thought that he was just trying to help and help the United States recover from the Great Depression.

Overall, I think that the New Deal Program was very effective and helped the U.S. with the Great Depression. Roosevelt and his fireside chats helped people to believe in him and the banking system. Without people believing in the banks, I think the Great Depression could have been a lot worse.


To create my video I did many things. The first thing I did was type up my script for my podcast so I could record it. Then I took two hours trying to record it, finally I finished. After I finished I looked for pictures that went with my podcast. Then I exported my podcast so that I could put it into iMovie. After all of this, I had to match my pictures up with my words in iMovie then export it and upload it to Edmodo so that I could get a web address for it and put into my Wiki page. That's what I did to create my video.
