Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To understand the impact that various individuals had on historical events of the post-World War II era.

TIME:
1 class period

Class members begin Part 1 of the lesson by reading about twelve individuals, or "newsmakers," who made headlines during the post-World War II era. A short summary is given for each person, and students are instructed to underline or highlight the most important words, names, terms, and ideas in the descriptions.

Afterwards, everyone turns their papers face down under their desks and participate in Contest 1. The 12 people they just read about are shown in a list, and 8 of them are described on the contest form. Students must identify these people by writing their names in the spaces provided. Correct answers are worth either 5, 10, 15, or 20 points. A perfect score is 100.

Once winners are determined, the activity continues in the same way with newsmakers 13-24 and Contest 2.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment or used as a review exercise later in the school year.
