The U.S.A.: the economic boom, the Great Depression, the New Deal

A CLIL module focusing on 1 - What was America like in the 1920's? 2 - What caused the Wall Street Crash? 3 - Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal.

01 - Presentation of the project


In this area, students from France and Italy will work together in order to know the society and the economy of Twenties and Thirties in the U.S.A., and the effects that the Great Depression and the New Deal had on their countries. We did a similar project last year but for most of our students this will the first eTwinning experience.

In the following days you will find resources and activities that we are preparing for you, and will have the opportunity to interact in English with your foreign classmates. We want to give you an opportunity to use what you learn in class also outside the class. An old African proverb explains what we want to achieve: "If You Want To Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want To Go Far, Go Together."

We hope you'll enjoy the idea!
