The Vietnam War: A Four Week Instructional Unit. Grades 11-12.
This 4-week curriculum is designed to help 11th and 12th grade students reach an understanding of the history and culture of Vietnam and the roots of U.S. military involvement there, and also to draw lessons from U.S. actions during the war in Vietnam. Students are encouraged to engage in critical thinking, evaluation, drawing conclusions, taking positions on political and social issues, and hopefully becoming more interested in international affairs and the further study of other cultures. Class activities include role playing, class and group discussions, report writing, library readings and research, talks by quest speakers, and video presentations. A unit syllabus and examinations are included along with lists of concepts, goals, and objectives, student handouts, and an extensive bibliography of resource materials. (DB)
