This lesson’s objective is to illustrate to students how America made decisions about intervening around the world during the Cold War. This Powerpoint is a companion piece to “Cold War and American Interventionism Lesson Dossiers (also in my store). It is meant to show the students which Third World leaders America supported and which it did not during the Cold War. You can see the whole lesson in the Dossiers download.
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.
