We are entering into our 7th week of online learning! Can you believe it? I know it has NOT been easy and I'm SO proud of you for making it this far. We only have a little left to do!
I LOVE talking about the Cold War! It was a rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union that lasted from the end of WWII to 1991 (about 45 years!!!). It is called "cold" because the US and the USSR never actually engaged in direct military campaigns with each other, instead, they battled through several "proxy" wars (Korean War, Vietnam War, Congo Crisis, etc.). Obviously, with 45 years worth of events, we can't cover everything BUT this week's lesson covers some of the major conflicts both at home and abroad during the Cold War.
Here is a recap of what we have covered during distance learning:
Week 1: Japanese American Internment in the U.S. during WWII
Week 2: Life on the Home Front during WWII and what life was like for many different groups in the U.S. during WWII
Week 3: America and the Holocaust
Week 4: The End of WWII and the Atomic Bombs
Week 5: The Civil Rights Movement (Key Leaders, Major Philosophies, the 4 "I's" of Oppression)
Week 6: The Civil Rights Movement through Film
Week 7: The COLD WAR (THIS WEEK!)
Due to AP testing and StuCo interviews, we will NOT have an all-class WebEx meeting this week, but I will continue to be available for help via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your assignment is due via CANVAS on Friday, May 22nd.
