State Standards: Cold War Conflicts
In this unit, students will examine the impact of Cold War tensions on the politics, society, and economics of the United States in the decades following
World War II. They will analyze the United States government’s response to the spread of communism at home and in other parts of the world, both in
political and military decisions. They will evaluate the impact of the Cold War on the cultural fabric of the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. As the
Vietnam War dragged on through the 1960s, conflict within the United States grew. Students will examine the causes and effects of those conflicts.
