Cold War Comic Books

AtomicWar2

Every teacher strives to find new ways to pique and keep students’ interest throughout the school year.

We believe that comic books can be one of many resources in this quest.

In this case we are highlighting a few Esquire Comics from the Cold War era.

The imagery can be quite graphic at times, so prescreening is always essential before passing something out.

We have included an assignment that is classroom ready to be used during a Cold War unit.

New year, new goals

students

We believe that an important part of Social Studies is teaching children real life skills, such as map reading and critical thinking skills, for example.

Today’s post emphasizes the need for setting and achieving realistic goals. This can be difficult for many people who often are too vague or too broad, leaving them overwhelmed and failing.

We designed this lesson many years ago for our 9th graders and have had much success over the years with all grade levels.

Our Five Goals assignment is ready for your classroom use today, let us know what you think!
