A Look Back at Modern History: 1950-1959 explores nearly 150 events that happened between 1950 and 1959. From the start of the Korean War to the beginning of Fidel Castro’s rule in Cuba, students will be challenged to learn when each event happened and, at times, why it happened. A set of 12 quizzes asks students to put events in order chronologically. Whether you use it for a review after students have studied a period, a tool to help students develop research skills, or a starting point for independent study of a fascinating decade, students will have the chance to discover modern history in a whole new way.
