- Richmond, Kansas City
This lesson presents a history of Federal Reserve events and milestones from 1907 to 1935. Defining events are highlighted by a readers' theater to help students better understand the time period. After each readers' theater scene, students write key information in a Centennial Journal to track the events and their historical impact. Students then complete a handout requiring them to explain the Federal Reserve's role in the key events during this period and how the Federal Reserve has changed over time. Student learning is assessed by their completion of an essay on the Federal Reserve System's ability to promote stable prices and economic growth over time.
