"Great unit on the Cold War"

THE SECOND SEMESTER OF US HISTORY

The 1960's where a very turbulent period. America needed leaders who could react to enormous public pressure and meet the challenges of a nation moving towards a new modern era. Presidents Kennedy and Johnson had to deal with civil rights issues, the Cold War, the Vietnam and the social upheaval of the turbulent sixties.

2. 13 Days Movie:

STEP 1: I start the Cuban Missile Crisis using the Stanford Lesson materials, which are free.

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)
