In this highly-engaging lesson, students analyze the Kent State University Shooting that took place as a result of protests to the Vietnam War in 1970 as well as the similar Jackson State shooting just 10-days later. Students analyze by reading (and listening) to an audio news transcript from those involved in the Kent State shooting to understand the protests to Vietnam, reasons for the escalation of force, and reaction from the public. Students complete a four-step analysis in relation to the Kent State shooting in the Vietnam War. Then, students do a similar activity to compare the Kent State incident with what happened at Jackson State College (now Jackson State University) just 10-days later.
A key is included!
