Using primary sources from a variety of materials, Virginia Schools in the Great Depression provides teachers and students with a different way to understand this period of American history. The site has five modules with a teacher's guide or lesson plan (in pdf or Word) to accompany three of those. Each module is subdivided into four parts: Introduction, Evidence (the primary sources), Conclusion, and Module Tools (which are primarily meant for teachers). The five Educational Modules available on this website are these: The Impact of the Depression on Virginia Public Schools; Who Should Bear the Burden? Public Opinion and School Policy in the Depression; Virginia Schools in Black and White: Enforcing Racial Lines in 1930s; Who Should Teach? Prohibitions on Married Women Teachers during the Depression; Teaching Civics in an Era of Crisis: Virginia’s Curriculum during the Great Depression.
