in 1933 on March 4th, Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected president. Even more important the first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was the one making a difference. during the depression women were the first to be let go from their jobs and newspaper reporters got cut back, Eleanor Roosevelt held weekly conferences at the White House for only women reporters. Partially because of her influence women gained political recognition. also women got to keep their jobs. she also helped out when it came to presidential tasks. Eleanor Roosevelt had a huge impact during the 1930’s and that interests me.
Lots of changes occured during the 1920’s, from people changing clothing to the way they entertained themselves. One of the biggest changes was using automobiles. People changed their lifestyles in order to live much more fulfilling lives.. People needed cars to transport themselves from their homes to the theater, to get to the grocery store, or even something as simple as buying a newspaper.
At first President Hoover did little to solve the depression. He thought that the people and the economy would eventually fall back into place. When he decided to do something, it was too late and the stock market had crashed. He tried the RFC which gave money to failing banks, railroads, and other failing insurance companies.
The early 1920’s in America set up the way America is now. There were different things that happened during this time that has made modern America. A change that happened during the early 20’s was the industrial revolution. The use of cars, other household machines, and new forms of production are wa
Hi my name is Chris H. and in my class of World Cultures I have a lot of things I want to leran but I am just going to explane the two main ones that i would like to learn about. The two are The Global Environment which is about the exploring of the world around us and the other one is The World Today and thats about the early civilizations and the develoment of the world. I want to learn about those cause they sound very interesting and stuff like that.
Hello, I am scott. I am now entering mr. sal’s 20th century class. I would like to learn about the 1900’s because there was a lot of history that changed our world today. I am a junior and i run cross country. I also play baseball and basketball.
I have always done well in history classes. They have always been very boring though and not interesting. I am looking forward to this year because we our going to learn about wars hopefully. I am a very good listener and try to pay attention in class so i dont have to study as hard. I am expecting for Mr. Sal to make 20th Century very fun. I am also expecting to learn about why some wars have been started. I want to know about this because it is our past and we need to learn what everyone went thrrough for i to be where we are now.
I am expecting to learn with the new Ipod touches. They are different and a change that helps me stay on topic. Technology now is in its prime and we need to use it to the fullest. Technology is going to help us learn about history faster and in a more effiecient way. I wanna learn alot more about technology and i think that we are going to this year because we are on Edmodo alot. I think that we are going to use technology so much that we are not even going to realize that we are using it anymore.
Hopefully class is fun and exciting.
Hi, my name is Jake C. The class I am in is world cultures for Mr. Sal. This year at nbhs. I am in 6th period.
Like the rest of my fellow classmates, I have a few expectations about the class of world cultures, and about the technology that we are to use in the class. Furthermore, one expectation I expect for the class is to discover new countries and the lifestyle that they all follow. every country has them, like the average American works 5 days a week and has the weekend off, there may be a country out in the middle east that does not have an office to go to every day, or land to work on. Another thing I expect from our class would be a lot of projects and papers doing research and working as a team to accomplish certain tasks
As for the technology, one of the expectations I have is to learn on the ipod’s and computers more than I have in any of the previous classes I have ever been in. I feel learning about a new culture through the internet will create a better learning environment for myself, this enables all of us to see daily blogs, new internet sites, etc. that are updated often from other people in different countries. Also, I expect to use technology so often in this class, that by the end of the year it will make no difference to myself or any classmate that by working on a project or assignment online or with a poster.
Well, hey there. I’m Kristo. I pretty much ADORE history. I’m in 20th at the moment.
There are some things I really want to learn more about. One of which is pretty much everything that happen in the 1960’s. Gay rights,Women’s rights,and HIPPIES! I do have reasons.
Women’s Rights, Gay Rights, and Harvey Milk
This probably my favorite topic because so much happened! I believe in equal rights for every one, no matter what. I’m a liberal; What can I say? 🙂 Harvey Milk was a HUGE inspiration to every one, not just gay community. He showed that you can do anything no matter who you may be.
Hippies are like the coolest humans alive. Hey were so accepting and were liberal. They loved nature and had WOODSTOCK! I wish I was alive in the sixties. They were super chill and believed in free love and equality. They were so natural it was beautiful, man. The music at Woodstock was amazing. (ex. Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, ect.)
In short, the 1960’s were amazing. I really do wish I was alive in the sixties. The music was groovy, the Hippies were so cool, and it was a decade for change. 🙂
Hello, my name is Tim C. and I am in 1st period 20th Century U.S. history. My expectations for this year are getting to learn about World War II and the Great Depression. I think WWII was an important part of U.S. history and I would love to learn more about this subject. The Great Depression is also not to be overlooked.
I would also like to use the technology in class to improve my skills, and to acquire new learning processes. By using new technology it will make my life easier and others as well. With multiple techniques I can experience alternative ways of learning.
