I will be out of class today.  Your assignments for today are as follows:

There is a worksheet you need to complete on chapters 21 & 22 while using a textbook.  You need to complete this on your own.  Turn it in when finished.

If there is any time left, I want you to complete an acrostic using the word GREAT DEPRESSION.  You are to write phrases specific to the time period using information and terms that you have learned about the topic.  Turn this in as well.  Have a great day!
