The Century: America's Time - 1946-1952: Best Years

If you are looking for a full year of try my WHOLE YEAR OF US HISTORY

Here is what is included in this 5 page download:

1. Note Taking Guide for Students: This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.

2. Teacher Notes : A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.

3. 4 MINI Quiz Questions: I like to use this as a verbal check if I did not assess them at the end of the video.

4. 3 Discussion Questions : I have chosen 3 discussion questions from the video that could be discussed at the end of the episode.

5. 10 Video Guide Questions: These are 10 questions that keep the students focused while they watch the video. I have included the discussion questions at the bottom.

6. 1 Essay question: I have selected one essay question to extend the video as HW or into the next day

7. Generic Guide: I have also made a 5 word generic guide for a class that might need a bit easier version of the above work.

After the initial jubilation at the end of World War II, America faced severe domestic
demographic problems and the international specter of communism and the Cold War. In
response to the serious housing shortages exacerbated by the high marriage rates and
subsequent baby boom of returning soldiers and the girls they left behind, the Truman administration created the GI Bill, which enabled veterans to secure low interest mortgages and college educations. But the domestic bliss of new homes and growing families could not alleviate the growing fears and hysteria of the new atomic age, and a demagogue from Wisconsin, Senator Joseph McCarthy, harnessed this hysteria for his personal political success. This episode covers some of the major events of the immediate post-war years such as the Korean War, McCarthyism, the Marshall Plan, the Berlin Airlift and the adjustment of returning soldiers.
