Although history seems to only remember the anti-war movement during the Vietnam War, the country was very supportive of our efforts in the beginning and agreed with our involvement; fighting communism all over the world.

This activity provides students with 6 different links to use as research. Seven questions are provided, directing students to different links to search for the answer. For example, What is one of the lessons we learned from Vietnam? Why might someone have been opposed to the war in Vietnam? What is the legacy of Vietnam?

Students will write summaries, view images (of protests from both sides), and ultimately decide which side they believe they would have been on and why. As an extension activity, I have students create their own protest posters about an issue they feel passionately about - taking inspiration from the images they saw in these links.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Apply grade 8 Reading standards to literary nonfiction (e.g., “Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is sound and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; recognize when irrelevant evidence is introduced”).
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.
Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration.
