Explain the differences that emerged regarding those agreements in the months following the end of the war in Europe. Assess the strategic options available to the United States in 1946. Articulate the meaning and origins of the strategy of containment.
  • Submarines: A Heated Competition in a Cold War
    In this lesson students will discuss the concept of competition while considering the disaster that befell the Soviet Union's first nuclear-powered ballistic-missile submarine, K-19. They will explore their ideas about competition by adopting the perspective of K-19's captain and creating a log of the submarine's first mission.
