Great Depression Journal During the Great Depression unit, you will be keeping a journal each class period. In your notebook, you will write a journal entry according to the writing prompt given each day. It will be a new topic each class and you will create a character with a family, story and personality to make it more original and creative. Journals will be read daily with partners or with the class. Use facts to make your entries accurate (from the textbook, PowerPoint and video information we discuss in class) and be creative! Each entry: 1 page in length At the end of the Depression unit, you will type up your written journal entries from the notebook and turn in as a final project.
