The Great Depression

  • Hey guys!
    A couple of things:
    1) Obviously, this isnt done yet, and i have more that i added since i uploaded this, but it takes a really long time to upload so I'm gonna wait till I'm done to upload the rest.
    2) As you can see, some of the colors got distorted on i have to fix that.
    3) This whole project is a little confusing because we have ALL of the great depression...meaning theres a lot of different ways to organize our powerpoint. What I did was....
    a. started with what it was
    b. went onto the major causes listed on one slide
    c. went in depth on the general causes of the depression for ALL of Europe on the next slides.
    d) went onto specific places (Germany, France, Britain, and Italy) and explained the specific causes and effects of the depression on them. I am working on Germany at the moment, and I have some background info on one slide (about the end of the war...treaty of versailles, dawes plan, etc) and then I am going into the immediate effects.
    e) at the end I am going to list all the causes
    f) the last slide will be the ? we have to answer about if there was no depression..or something like that

    please comment back here or on the wiki (preferably on the wiki) and tell me if there is another way you want me to organize the powerpoint or if you think the way I'm doing it is ok. Like i said, there are a LOT of ways to organize this power point and i was having a lot of trouble deciding which way would be best, and I think that this is the best way. Ok, bye!
    =) Amber
