USH kickoff Feb 11-14: The New Deal

Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) was elected President in 1932.  He started what was called “The New Deal” – a series of new laws and new government programs to help get the U.S. out of the economic misery of the Great Depression.

Your assignment for this kickoff is to identify and define 5 new laws or programs created during the New Deal.  In addition, for TWO of the items you identified, answer this question: was that law or program a success or failure?  Why?  You can use Chap 15 (old book) or Chap 10 (new book) for this kickoff.

HINT:  For help, go back and “view results” for Quia 15.1 question #11.

Some possibilities include:

New legislation:  Emergency Banking Relief Act — Glass Steagall Banking Act — the Securities Act — the Wagner Act — Social Security Act — National Housing Act — Fair Labor Standards Act

New programs:  Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) — Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) — Home Owners Loan Corporation (HOLC) — Farm Credit Administration (FCA) — Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA) — National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) — National Recovery Administration (NRA) — Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) — Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) — Public Works Administration (PWA) — Civil Works Adminstration (CWA) — Works Progress Administration (WPA) — National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)
