Resources About the Great Depression

Today marks the 81st anniversary of Black Tuesday, the day that the stock market crashed triggering the Great Depression. Below you will find some videos and links to lessons related to the Great Depression.

On YouTube I came across a playlist of 43 videos about Black Tuesday and the Great Depression. The playlist is a mix of archival film and documentary film. The list is embedded below.


From PBS Video Great Depression Stories features three women talking about their experiences during the Great Depression.


The following four links are resources that I've previously shared on Free Technology for Teachers.
