Hi Carina,

The Library of Congress has a wealth of materials--a significant number of which are available in its digitized collections.

In particular, take a look at the LoCs Teaching With Primary Sources.

Regards,

Good morning,

My name is Carina Morgan and I am the head of education at the U.S. Navy Seabee Museum. Our Museum teaches the history of the Navy’s Construction Battalions (Seabees) and Civil Engineer Corps (CEC We are redesigning our CEC gallery which includes an area on Interwar Developments between WWI and WWII). I need suggestions for engaging visitors in our exhibit area that covers the Great Depression.

At the onset of the Great Depression, the Bureau of Navy Yards and Docks administered the Works Progress Administration (WPA) which put roughly 8.5 million Americans to work through public works projects and art programs. We would like to include small cards in this section that highlight individuals impacted by the Great Depression and show how the Works Progress Administration changed their lives.

Are there educators who have developed content for this time period who are willing to share ideas or point me in the right direction? This would be a major visitor engagement/touch point in our CEC exhibit space. I am also open to new ideas!

Very respectfully,

Carina
