Historical Context for The Grapes of Wrath

Seniors,

Please look at these photographs and read these facts about the dust bowl.





Choose 2 slides and respond to them. What historical context did you learn? If you are responding to a photo, describe it. How does seeing this image or learning this fact help you to understand The Grapes of Wrath better?

Here is the link to the video I want you to watch next. Note similarities and differences between this contemporary documentary and the issues described in The Grapes of Wrath.
