This is a handout, each piece of paper has 4 slips to cut out and hand out to students. (Save printer money!) :) Set margins to 'narrow' in Word for it to print properly.
The vocabulary covered is:
Yalta Conference, Containment, Marshall Plan, Truman Doctrine, McCarthyism, Red Scare (1950’s), Mutually Assured Destruction (M.A.D.), Bay of Pigs Invasion, Cuban Missile Crisis, Berlin Wall.
These words were chosen to supplement instruction from other lessons on the Cold War, the Korean War, etc.
I used this as homework for over the weekend, but this would work well as an in-class research assignment.
Easy to grade! Scan over student writing and make sure they have the required number of sentences, and that their writing follows the format the assignment asks for!
