This activity includes the use of 7 primary source texts (speech excerpts, photographs, and comic strip) to engage students and encourage them to interact with text and cite specific evidence. Each document comes with at least 3 questions. The questions build upon each other to help students see both sides of the issue with McCarthyism during America's Cold War Era. At the end, students will take the information they have gained while analyzing the documents and construct an argumentative essay. This file includes the graphic organizer and argumentative essay instructions.
