Soviet Espionage in America

The war against Communism and Joseph McCarthy’s place in it are the focus of a series of three lessons examining postwar America from 1945-1950. This first lesson asks groups to read an introduction that describes the Verona Project and to examine excerpts from FBI memos on the project. Each group then researches an assigned suspect and shares their findings with the class. The lesson ends with a reenactment of the Rosenberg trial and a vote on their innocence or guilt.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
