These materials I added during Unit 3 in response to the questions by the on-campus class. I also typed the snapshots provided below (1-page comparisons of a 30-year period on the same issues) that will help you with the questions:
· National debt – something key to understand our current situation

Savings and Loan Disaster
This link lets you also see the interconnections visually: http://www.cjbibus.com/1980s_reform_disasters_savings_and_loan_exampleREV.pdf

2. Snapshots of how things changed over time:
Part of a useful understanding of history is realizing how much life has changed in this short period. In the buzz, students misunderstand what caused what.
3. The visual provided about national debt and age cohorts as they reveal change over time. It is provided with a quiz, but it may help you with the top rows of the Snapshots above. http://www.cjbibus.com/1302_Concepts_about_Generations_Debt_Change_Over_Time.htm
