My name is Rebecca Harper and I am a South Carolina History teacher at Aiken Middle School.  I teach one eighth grade class of history which focuses on U. S. History as well.  This class allows students to study historical developments and events in their own state as well as important and relevant content that pertains to the United States.

Franklin D. Roosevelt and The New Deal

       This lesson will be used to inform students of the various impacts and effects of The New Deal.  Students will receive information describing the basic components of The New Deal as well as the causes leading up to the formation of The New Deal and the effects that occurred because of it.
