Product Description
Engage your students in learning more about the anti-war movement of the Vietnam War as they debate and assess what methods of protest are justified during wartime. Using a basic speed-dating format, this lesson provides eighteen different role cards representing a different American individual or group along with a corresponding strategy for resistance to the Vietnam War. These roles introduce students to several of the key events, reasons for opposition, and players in the anti-war movement. Each role card provides a brief synopsis and background thus eliminating the need for student research. This product also includes an introductory reading to the anti-war movement for students to help contextualize their learning as well as a data retrieval chart for the speed dating exercise. Lastly, the product also includes an exit ticket exercise to allow students to analyze the justification for the different methods they learned about. A basic lesson plan overview is provided to assist teachers.
