The Bonus March: How to Teach History with a Civics Lesson
In 1932, World War I veterans boarded freight trains from Portland, Oregon, to Washington, DC, to lobby Congress for early payment of a bonus that was scheduled to be paid in 1945. On July 28th, 1932, the police, and later the military, put down a riot made up of nearly 60,000 Bonus Marchers. This webinar will show how to blend primary sources, historic narrative, and civics into an inquiry arc using the Bonus March.

Presidential Power: Truman and the Steel Crisis
During the Korean War, President Truman faced a dilemma. The steel industry mill owners and workers could not agree on wages and price controls. A strike seemed inevitable. Truman was concerned that a lack of steel during the Korean War would hinder the war effort. Truman reacted by seizing the steel mills and this led to a constitutional crisis. This event in American history involves all three branches of government and is a case study of presidential overreach.
