Product Description
Engage your students in understanding the choices that led to America's increasing involvement in the Vietnam conflict, which would become America's Vietnam War. Using four in-depth historical think-alouds, students working in groups become President Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson at critical junctures in their presidencies as they choose how to direct America's involvement. Each think-aloud case, building upon the previous one, includes background information on the Vietnam conflict, the domestic situation, and the current events of the Cold War at that time; key content words are underlined in each case to help aid students vocabulary acquisition. Students are asked to consider the primary problem facing the president, the assumptions the president holds at the time, major goals, and possible consequences of action. Following the making of a choice amongst provided options, the teacher can then use the "What Really Happened" teacher sheet to involve students in a discussion of the choices provided.

This product includes: a teacher lesson plan; four think-aloud cases; a student decision-making chart; an exit ticket to assess individual student learning; and a "What Really Happened" answer sheet. This is a great lesson to use in a unit on the Cold War or the Vietnam War.
