PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What was it like to be an American soldier during the Korean War?

The Korean War is often referred to as the "Forgotten War," a fitting designation due to the triumphant WWII and controversial Vietnam War efforts that overshadowed it on both sides. Despite being overlooked, the soldiers of the Korean War endured some of the harshest war conditions in American history. With this lesson, your students will not only remember the endeavors of veterans of the Korean conflict, but they will appreciate their service in the face of tremendous odds.

In this lesson, students will:
1) Respond to a Bell Ringer in which they will explain whether they would ever consider volunteering for the military.
2) Read an introductory, contextual reading about the Korean War.
3) Discuss what a soldier's life was like in Korea, after watching a 20 minute video clip.
4) Investigate Korean War primary sources and select textual evidence (direct quotes) that speak directly to Korean War soldier's experiences.
5) Finish with an Exit Ticket that asks students to summarize what it was like to serve in the Korean War.
