The Rise and Fall of Joseph McCarthy

"I have here in my hand . . ." The war against Communism and Joseph McCarthy’s place in it are the focus of a series of lessons examining postwar America from 1945-1954. Joseph McCarthy takes center stage in this, the final lesson of the series, and examines the senator's activities from 1950 through 1954. Groups read several primary source documents and guided by the included questions, consider how McCarthy's actions lead to his downfall.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver in assisting me with planning great lessons for my students. It has helped me to see what other teachers are using to engage their students in learning.
