Today, we discussed the technological innovations that developed as a result of the Cold War competitions between the US and the USSR. Students took a few notes (see picture below) then we watched two brief videos (no notes or assignment went with them, it was just to supplement the notes they had already taken). Then two articles were assigned with question sets. Articles had to be annotated in order to receive full credit for the assignment. They were Politics After WWI and Cold War Tensions and The Start of the Space Race. We then finished with a Crash Course video about the Korean and Vietnam Wars. There was a question set with this video as well as notes within the questions for students to study from.
All classes have to complete the article The Cuban Missile Crisis for homework. Unfortunately, with only 9 days remaining, homework will be more common in an effort to review and supplement classwork.
Everything from today is attached below. Students who are absent today need to make sure this work is completed in order to stay up to date in class.
