Chris Miller -- New Deal Initiatives
Howard - Suamico middle school teacher Chris Miller will develop lesson plans that examine the local impact of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal initiatives, specifically the impacts of the CCC and WPA in the Green Bay, Fox Valley, and Northeastern Wisconsin area. Chris Millder has found that his students found many relevant and interesting connections to today’s economy and the federal government initiatives to help end the current recession. The primary question he would address is whether or not the projects conducted in the 1930’s had a lasting impact in the area, or did they simply fill a need to give temporary work/relief to those unemployed in the area.
