STEP 2: I then go through the different people involved on the US side of things to make sure the students understand what we will be seeing over the course of the period. (PPT that is included in the 13 Days materials)

STEP 3: Pass out the worksheet that goes with the movie and begin to explain what you want the students to do during the movie. The movie guide is 3 pieces of paper and takes 10-15 minutes to go through to make sure the students understand what to do.

STEP 4: I will then begin showing the 13 Days in class making sure the students know just how close to WWIII we came. (Day 2/3)

3. Story of US Superpowers: Great review of everything that was covered in the teaching. The show was pulled off of youtube but is on Amazon Prime for free if you have that. (1 Day)
