Economic crash, job loss, home loss, ecological crisis: although Americans face these today, Americans have also faced these before. History and literature help students learn how their great-grandparents survived many discouragements. This fact-based website tells the survival story of Americans during past hard times.
Slice-of-life literature helps teachers make history come alive. Students see the emotional and political impact on families, women and their friends, and communities in times of money stress and societal change.
The author invites interaction with students and readers.
