    Carter_Fireside

    On February 2, 1977, less than two weeks after assuming the Presidency, Jimmy Carter addressed the nation in a televised “fireside chat” to speak to Americans about the looming Energy Crisis. What tools and resources does the Constitution provide the Executive branch to take on such a crisis? What role do the other branches of government play? How did ordinary Americans respond to help reshape our democracy and life as we know it? This program will examine the 39th President’s response to this crisis through the lens of primary sources of the Carter Library and National Archives.

    The target audience for this program is students and teachers grades 6-12. To sign up for either the 11:00 AM or 2:00 PM session, complete the online 2021 Presidential Primary Sources Project Teacher Registration Form.
