This week in class, we’re reading "The Forgotten Man" by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In the Franklin D. Roosevelt's radio address "The Forgotten Man," Roosevelt discusses America's economy and how he would like to improve it.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Power & Greed, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?", "Does money buy happiness?", and "How do people create change?"
