Sometimes called the forgotten war, this was one of the first major conflicts of the Cold War and a significant test for the new U.N. This conflict was fought essentially to a standstill and technically the two sides are still at war today.
Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ Geography of Korea
♦ Background of the conflict
♦ Role of the U.N.
♦ Cold War Paranoia
♦ Role of China
♦ Truman Doctrine
♦ Stages of the War
♦ Legacy of the conflict
It includes handouts for note taking as well as reflection questions.
There are nine links within the presentation to Youtube. The videos total ~24 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.
This lesson takes me approximately two 60 minute periods to complete.
