If you are looking for SECOND SEMESTER OF US HISTORY
The Vietnam War had an incredible impact that will shape the next decade. This unit builds on the 1960's units I created with:
- 1. Facts about the decade:
Some interesting facts I have included about the decade sheet.
- 2. Vietnam War Teaching:
I usually run out of time while teaching the Vietnam war because I spend time on the early part of American history. This has led to the creation of 3 different PPT's that vary in length. I have a short one, a medium one and a long one. Each unit covers the basics, while the longer ones tend to go a little more in depth on certain areas of the war. ( 1-2 Days)
- 3. Discussion Day:
This is a great day to do an in class discussion on the concepts that have been taught over the last week. Give the students 20 minutes to write their own answers and then have them discuss for 20 minutes. (1 Day)
- 4. Yesterday Show:
A great way to the end the year and have the students re-teach a lot of the information that was covered during the semester. This interactive project has the students work in teams to present information about each decade in a competitive environment. The 2 presentations are judged by 3 teachers, if you can get any on their prep. The class has been broken into 2 separate groups so they are working as a team as they support each decade that is presented.

1. Note Taking Guide for Students:
This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.
2. Summary of the Video:
A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.
3. Teacher Notes from the:
My 1 page of notes.
4. Vocabulary Section:
I have chosen 3 words that would be good to have the students look up. I also have them write each of the words in a sentence.
5. Quiz for students / with answers:
There is a 7 question quiz with answers from the episode. It can be taken in class or taken home. I think in class would be better.
6. Blank Template for student created quiz:
I decided to add this to every Crash Course guide as it works really well with students.
**Also, I highly recommend having the students watch this on .5 speed. If you click the wheel on the bottom of the youtube video you can adjust the speed.
