Product Description
"Fake news" is all the rage in classroom discussions these days, but how can we get students to determine the validity of information and to closely examine the depiction of historical events to decide on accuracy? Through the use of Bill O'Reilly's book, Killing Kennedy, students will spend four weeks selecting from a variety of Cold War events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedy's presidency, the beginnings of the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, and more. The unit overview contains both collaborative and individual tasks, with ample opportunities for student choice. This lesson satisfies a handful of important Common Core Social Studies standards, while also embedding literacy and productive group work in a Social Studies classroom.
