John F Kennedy’s Impact On America

April 3, 2017

     In American History II class, we are currently discussing how American society changed during the 1960’s.  The classes have been looking in depth into the saying, “all men are created equal,” and answering questions about American integrity that were challenged by the overt political, social and economic inequality of the races.  We are also covering the key people and events of the Cold War.  Some of the topics the students are studying include the cuban missile crisis, the bay of pigs invasion, and the crisis in Berlin.  We will also be looking into JFK’s assassination and creating our own conspiracy theories over the tragic incident .  Students have filled out graphic organizers, took detailed notes, wrote an essay and are watching videos over the events throughout the 1960’s.  They really seem to be enjoying this unit!
