Parallel Histories: United States and Vietnam. Module for Educators, Grades 7-12.
Sorenson, Mary Eileen
This teaching module covers the Vietnam War, and consists of four lessons which can be used independently in interdisciplinary presentations or as a unit. The lessons are supported by documents that include accounts of refugees, parallel histories of the United States and Vietnam, a map, and newspaper clippings. Lesson 1 (supported by 10 documents) covers the "Consequences of War--the Refugees" and attempts to give students a sense of the plight and pain of war refugees. Lesson 2 (4 documents), entitled "Parallel Histories of the United States and Vietnam," explains the historical background of the conflict. Lesson 3 (3 documents), "Today: Vietnam and the United States," discusses Vietnam, its land and people, and both those in the United States who fought in the war and those who protested against it. Lesson 4 (2 documents), "Refugees 1988," is aimed at the growing problem of Southeast Asian refugees. (PPB)
