This unit is appropriate for any high school or advanced middle school social studies program. It uses primary source documents, student research and diverse media resources to explore the wars in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from multiple perspectives, and addresses a wide range of Common Core skills in Language Arts and Social Studies, including some basic civics.
All required resources are included in this unit with one exception: the documentary film Bombies by Jack Silberman. This film is distributed by Bullfrog Films, and can be purchased directly through their website http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/. Contacting Bullfrog directly is recommended (800-543-FROG) because they often offer generous educator discounts.
Also included with this unit are optional extension materials that can be added to the existing unit, or assigned to advanced students to extend their learning beyond the general population.
