At home, students keep up with their textbook reading (there will be a reading quiz), and complete a small project. For the assignment, I gave the students eight Cold War events to discuss and describe.
- Yalta Conference
- Formation of the United Nations
- Truman Doctrine
- Marshall Plan
- Berlin Airlift
- Formation of NATO
- Korean War
StoryMapJS is a form a presentation software, and a StoryMap lets you tell stories visually on a map. I've used StoryMapJS earlier this year and loved it.
