WAR! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR! In class May 31

TARGET – I can explain and evaluate the various reasons why people opposed the war in Vietnam.

America’s involvement in Vietnam was the most controversial issue of the 1960s and 70s, and the war created the most vocal and varied opposition of any war in our country’s history. What were the reasons for this opposition? Why did so many Americans oppose the American involvement in Vietnam? That’s your task in class today! 

To begin, read and watch Vietnam War Protests from the History Channel

You will receive a SPECIFIC protest topic that you will share with your fellow protesters in class.  Take a look at the resource(s) below and create SOMETHING that you would use to help spread the word about you reason for opposing the war in Vietnam.  You can make a protest sign with a slogan, a leaflet or pamphlet to hand out, a protest button – you name it!
