In American History II class, we are currently discussing the events around the world that would cause the United States to enter the Cold War. In this unit of study, we will describe the political ideas of the United States and the Soviet Union, thus explaining what roles both countries played in the development of the Cold War. We will explain the impact of the Korean War on the ongoing relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union. The classes have been actively engaged in the differing political ideas of foreign dictators with our American democracy. Students have been filling out guided reading assignments, taking detailed notes, and watching video clips over U.S. involvement in the Cold War. Classes will soon start to examine the effects of the Korean War and its impact on the U.S. and its leaders to finish up the chapter. The students really seem to be enjoying this unit!
