FDR and the World Crisis, 1933-1945: Roosevelt and Hyde Park

Two one-week workshops for 100 school teachers to examine the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt at his residence in Hyde Park.

“FDR and the World Crisis, 1933-1945: Understanding Roosevelt’s World Through the Prism of Hyde Park” is a Teacher’s Institute that will examine FDR’s overall response to the world crisis of 1933 to 1945, with a view toward gaining a greater understanding of how his policies transformed America and the world during these critical years. Undertaken from the vantage point of the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, the project will offer teachers a unique perspective on Roosevelt’s response to the Great Depression and World War II, with a special emphasis on how FDR’s relationship to Hyde Park influenced his thinking about national policy and America’s role in the world.
