As part of our mission, we provide free lesson plans for educators to use in the classroom. Lesson plans include primary source integration as well as audio/visual material. All these lesson plans were created for a 200 level Vietnam War History college course. However, they can also be modified and utilized for high school courses. The lesson plans focus on the politics behind the war, as well as the impacts of the war on American society (with less attention on the military history/strategy and tactics of the war).
Feel free to download the lesson plans and make any changes for your own specific classroom. Questions? Reach out to use through the contact form and we can help with any lesson plan modifications!
