The Kennedy Era

The Kennedy family

Good morning sophomores!

Today we are leaving the prosperity and conformity of the 1950’s and moving forward to the 1960’s. The sixties began as a decade of hope with the election of a new young President: John F. Kennedy. Kennedy represented a new generation taking power in Washington DC. He brought youth and energy to the White House. But a decade that began with such vigor and hope ended in tragedy on November 22, 1963. Many historians believe the event on that day changed the decade of the 1960’s and helped lead to the dissatisfaction and unrest that developed through the rest of the decade.

Today, we will work on on this Guided Reading: Ch. 27 Sec. 2-3 (JFK – Cold War & Thousand Days)
