Here is the directions and guidelines for the new project where you will be creating a video production to demonstrate a Cold War theme within the United States. You will be creatinga propaganda production (can be a commercial, a short movie, etc.)

DON’T FREAK OUT!!!! This assignment is intended to be fun, promote creativity, demonstrate understanding in an alternative way, and give media production experience! I’m not expecting your productions to be Steven Spielberg caliber! Cold War Propaganda Project

Be prepared to discuss and participate today!

You need to know who these two people are!

Today we will begin covering the Cold War. You should have a solid prior knowledge of this topic from covering it with Mr. O’Neil last year. We will go into a bit more detail while focusing on particular topics that can show up on the OGT.

I want you to think about the main ways that the end of World War II led to the Cold War.

Today you will be going over a vocabulary for chapter 25. It is very important that you take this seriously and learn these terms–because most of them can show up on the OGT. The better you understand them, the better you will do on a potential question that includes them!

Here is today’s assignment that we will be working on in class: Ch. 25 Introduction (Cold War Begins)   (PLEASE EITHER BRING YOUR LAPTOPS OR PRINT THIS US FOR CLASS ON WEDNESDAY!)  We wil

Hey Sophomores!

I hope you all had a good day today. Could someone (from each class) post in the comments how far you got on the DVD today? I need to know if you finished it or not so I can plan time to finish it (if we need to) tomorrow.

Also, did you think the DVD was good? Did you learn anything from it? Were most people able to answer the questions?

Thanks and I’ll see you all tomorrow.

Mr. Jones
