We are trying to collect and disseminate curricula and aids to help teachers and students in courses about the New Deal and American history. Please contact us if you would like to contribute to our collection.
A New Deal in California – Teacher Resources was created by the California Historical Society, for which the Living New Deal team provided input (back when we focused solely on California). It contains material that would be useful for others states, as well.
Other Resources and Ideas for Educational Use of the Site
We have two extensive bibliographies on our Resources Page.
Teachers may want to consult our New Deal sites map to show students where local New Deal projects are located. We would urge teachers to organize class projects where students can search out New Deal sites and submit the documentation to us for inclusion in our national inventory & map (we give credit to anyone who submits such data). Students also love to interview their parents, grandparents and other elders about their recollections for our New Deal stories page.
Guidelines for volunteering, seeking out New Deal sites, and submitting information are provided on our Get Involved pages.
We also hope to develop a New Deal Maps gallery soon.
