This independent reading activity covers areas such as JFK's foreign affairs (Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis), the Korean War, and also touches on review for the Berlin Airlift and the United Nations. This would ideally be given after your lecture on the following topics and as a supplemental review before an exit ticket. In addition to the reading comprehension paragraphs there are also multiple choice and stimulus based questions for students to answer (complete with answer key).
