    Essential Question: What was so great about the Depression?

    Agenda: Today we look at the Great Depression's effects on Urbana. First, we graph the population growth of Urbana from 1870 through 2000 to see the population growth slowdown during the Depression. We also look at Urbana Money, Urbana-created currency actually used during the Depression.

    Homework: Urbana population growth graphs not completed in class are due tomorrow.
