Explore the Red Scare using the Talk-Read-Talk-Write method. Hook your students with a short a video and then Turn and Talk. Next students will read an article about the Hollywood 10 and Blacklists under HUAC and McCarthyism, while paying attention to a few comprehension questions. Next students will break into group and discuss a set of group questions. Teachers can choose to wrap-up with whole class discussion and then end with a short writing prompt. This lesson is geared towards on-level US History but I think AP students would enjoy it as well.
