This was originally created as a script for my History Class Vlog. I plan to use the Vlog as a resource for my classes. I will link to the Vlog later.
Welcome to the 1960’s.
We will be trying something new for this unit, information will be presented several different ways, you get to choose how you process it. More details will be forthcoming in the days ahead.
As was stated at the beginning, welcome to the 1960’s.
The decade Starts as a continuation of the 1950’s
We know there was the 1950’s we remember nostalgically and then there was the 1950’s for those not so fortunate.
We start with Camelot in DC and end with violence and protests throughout the US.
For those who loved the nostalgia, their country did not look the same. For those who wanted change so much hope was lost in the struggle.
We had three presidents, a slew of assassinations, a Cold War, a conflict, a War on Poverty, the splintering of music, including an English Invasion, along with many misc topics we will mention, not here, but in the course.
Hold on to your hats kiddies, the 1960’s were a chaotic time for many.
