This is a research activity where students learn about several dictators brought into power by the United States due to Cold War politics. Students research one dictator from each part of the world. Our school has a subscription to Encyclopedia Britanica and all of the dictators listed can be found in their database. If your school does not have a subscription, you can have students use library sets of encyclopedias or online resources to complete. Students will learn that many of the leaders that the U.S. helped bring to power are still impacting the world today.
