Product Description
This lesson’s objective is to illustrate to students how America made decisions about intervening around the world during the Cold War. In partners (or whatever grouping you decide) students review the “CIA Dossiers” of various 20th century world leaders. On a separate piece of paper, students then write in at least 2 complete sentences who the United States should support and who it should mount a coup against or assassinate and why. Once all students have made their decisions and written their sentences--about a half hour depending on the class--show the “Cold War and American Interventionism Powerpoint” (also in my store). After that, discuss with the students what qualities made certain leaders safe, and what qualities made them targets for American intervention.

This lesson is highly collaborative and includes writing, reading, and critical thinking pieces. It is aligned to Common Core Standards RH 11-12.1, 11-12.3, 11-12.7, 11-12.9, and 11-12.10.
