Product Description
Utilizing released classified documents, excerpts from the Excomm meetings, and various other primary sources released by the national archives, students will explore the Cuban Missile Crisis in depth. They will hear the tension in Kennedy's voice and feel like they are a part of the room as the decisions on how to handle Cuba and Russia are made. This offers a great springboard for discussion as well.

This assignment can be given as homework or completed over the course of 2-3 days in class.
