Product Description
This product includes a test bank of 100 multiple-choice questions and 6 essay prompts that cover Cold War history from 1945-1991. The test bank and essay prompts are fully editable to meet your needs. This product was designed to allow you to create your own assessments from the available questions so that whether you cover the Cold War as one big unit or break it up chronologically into smaller units, you have assessment questions that meet your needs. These questions can be used on tests, quizzes, writing assignments, or final exams.

The multiple-choice questions are broken down as follows:
1. Early Cold War: 1940s and 50s- 30 Questions
2. The Red Scare: 1940s and 50s- 15 Questions
3. Mid-Cold War: 1960s and 70s- 30 Questions
4. Late-Cold War: 1980s and 90s- 25 Questions

The questions are designed for U.S. History classes, but also address several World History standards as well (see below). They come in an editable word document, as well as a PDF. I have included an answer key for the multiple choice questions, but there is no specific rubric for the essay questions, as each teacher has their own grading methods for writing assignments. I have also included some basic teacher directions to provide some further information and my terms of use.

Based on the California Standards Below:
11.7.8- Analyze the effect of massive aid given to Western Europe under the Marshall Plan to rebuild itself after the war and the importance of a rebuilt Europe to the U.S. economy.
11.9- Students analyze U.S. foreign policy since World War II.
2- Understand the role of military alliances, including NATO and SEATO, in deterring communist aggression and maintaining security during the Cold War.
3-Trace the origins and geopolitical consequences (foreign and domestic) of the Cold War and containment policy, including the following:
* The era of McCarthyism, instances of domestic Communism (e.g., Alger Hiss) and blacklisting 

* The Truman Doctrine 

* The Berlin Blockade 

* The Korean War 

* The Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis 

* Atomic testing in the American West, the “mutual assured destruction” doctrine, and disarmament policies 

* The Vietnam War 

* Latin American policy
5- Analyze the role of the Reagan administration and other factors in the victory of the West in the Cold War.
*Several similar standards and themes are addressed in World History classes as well.
