Cold War: Eisenhower Vs. Khrushchev & the U2 incident- Bridge of Spies Lesson
to start this lesson I divide the class in two- or tell students to pick a partner. I give one of them the US reading and one of them the Soviet Union Reading
I ask the groups to answer the questions and then get in their US/ USSR group and discuss.
Then I have them trade readings and answer the questions and discuss
Later we go into a large class discussion about justice, espionage and escalation.
To end I show clips from the film "Bridge of Spies"
