History 12-1: Reviewing the big ideas in the Cold War/analyzing the NATO treaty and Warsaw Pact treaty
Today we began by labelling a map from the Korean War era (1950-53) and then completing a fill-in-the-blank activity to review the BIG ideas from the start of the Cold War (at least as far as understanding some of the catalysts and the responses). We spent most of the class in small groups using a list of focus questions to dissect the treaties of NATO and The Warsaw Pact. Tomorrow I will be out of the class but I will have some activities that you can complete independently. There is no specific reading for tonight, but if you will be busy later in the week, you may choose to get started reading Chapter 13 from DeMarco.
