PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this 11 page packet you have everything you need to have your students investigate the differing perspectives of the U.S. and S.U. at the end of WWII using primary sources. Primary Source excerpts include “The Iron Curtain Speech”, “The Long Telegram”, a speech by Khrushchev and more! Each source addresses one of the following questions:
Was Europe divided by the Iron Curtain?
How did the United States and Soviet Union view the post-war world?
Should economic aid be sent to Europe?
Were the U.S. and S.U. taking sides against one another?

At the end of this activity your students will be able to answer the question:
“How did the perspectives of the U.S. and S.U. differ at the end of WWII that affected world peace for decades to come?”
Your students will work in pairs or independently to:
1) Read/examine 13 primary source excerpts/political cartoons and answer comprehension questions about these sources that will guide their understanding.
2) Use their understanding of the sources to create a poem from 2 perspectives- handout (with student directions) which will allow you to assess their understanding of the differing perspectives of the U.S. and S.U. at the end of WWII.
