Public Opinion and the Vietnam War [electronic resource]

Loading...
Liz Morrison, a Ninth Grade American History teacher at Parkway South High School in suburban St. Louis, explores how public opinion was shaped by key events in the Vietnam War. Students create a timeline and work in groups to discover how public opinion changed from approval to disapproval over the course of the war. The students view television footage from this period and listen to popular music that reflects both sides of public opinion. Ms. Morrison helps her students make connections from the Vietnam War to political attitudes in their world today.

Gender-Based Distinctions [electronic resource]

Loading...
In Tim Rockey's 10th Grade World History class at Sunnyslope High School in Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. Rockey reviews the concept of civil rights, with a focus on women's rights. Students evaluate the "reasonableness" standard as set by the court and come to understand where the court has drawn the line for gender-based decisions. They explore the following questions: Can public taverns cater only to men? Can females be excluded from contact sports? Can a state military college exclude women? After examining Supreme Court cases, students render a judgment of the validity of the standard of equal rights.
