THE SECOND SEMESTER OF US HISTORY

This is a great lesson that I use with my US History class. I start with the PowerPoint that takes 3 days to go through to introduce the Cold War unit. ( See below)

Following the completion of the PowerPoint I begin teaching some of the Stanford University lessons on the Cold War. I have included the link for this in your purchase.

Here is what is included:

1. 1950's PPT- This is a 3 day PPT with videos and note taking guide that I use to set the stage for the 1950's. The PPT goes through all of the events of the 1950's to prepare the students for the movie 13 days. I have also included the Duck and Cover video that is 9 minutes. ( I have included a Duck and Cover video and an Elvis video)

2. CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS STANFORD LESSON- I have included this free resource as it makes a great addition to the package. It allows the students to DIG into the history and form opinions about what was going on during this time period.

3. INTRO TO FILM PPT- The intro to the film is a short PPT that allows the teacher to go over the background to the event as well as the main characters to the film. I have also included a quiz that can be used as a pre/post test.

4. FILM TIME- This is a PDF that outlines the perfect times to start and stop the film. Believe it or not this film is not always loved by my students. However, if I do the short version the students really get into the movie while retaining the story. I do not have them take notes but just watch. There are too many things going on for them to take notes. I might create a guide for this in the future.

***************************************************************************

This video is not available on youtube any longer but is available on Netflix if you get DVD's. It is also available for purchase on Amazon for less than a 1.00.

This lesson focuses on the minutes to go through to make sure you only show exactly what is important from the movie 13 days.
