Quickly jot down what you know about the Cold War. • Who was involved? • What started the war? • Where was it located, if in a specific country? • What countries were effected?
Write down main highlights of video (Who, What, Where) and check your notes…was anything similar? Remember: this is a video meant to be humorous so biases are present. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU _8OLBK0ic
Get with a partner and determine why you think the war has been labeled as the “Cold War”? • Answers such as “Because Russia is cold…” Do not work! • Try some deeper level thinking here…What types of events occurred?
German Reparations Truman: World Bank, IMF, Marshall Plan Berlin Airlift Iron Curtain
Truman Doctrine NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Warsaw Pact
Gorbachev Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF treaty) Soviet Union dissolved through new republics.
Get back with your same partner, now using your knowledge of the war, why do you think the cold war is labeled as cold? We will present these to the class from both the before and after so put some thought and use notes to support your answer.
