Review & New Vocabulary Pretend you are living in Eastern Europe under Soviet rule. Compose a short speech explaining why you want political and economic changes (in your composition notebook). New vocabulary: Deposed: To be removed from power (ex. Nikita Khrushchev, 1964). Détente (pronounced day-TAHNT, French for “relaxation”): A period of lessening tension (ex. NATO & Warsaw Pact nations in the 1970s).
Discussion With a partner, discuss, and write a brief response to the following (1 per group): Why do people want changes? What make change hard? Why is change sometimes scary? What characteristics are necessary to bring change?
Reading/Photo Analysis Read “Attempts at Change” paragraph. What would be a good headline for a newspaper featuring this photo? What might a caption of this photo read?
Read Krushchev paragraph What might Krushchev be thinking in this photograph?
What do you think former President John F. Kennedy is saying to Nikita Krushchev? What do you think Krushchev is telling the Soviet government (just prior to being deposed)?
Read “The Prague Spring” paragraph What is the significance of the crowd waving their country’s flag on top of a Soviet tank?
Which picture best depicts the ultimate outcome? This one, or the photo on the previous slide? Why?
Read “détente” and “economic crisis paragraphs What can we infer from this magazine cover about the period of détente? What can we infer from this magazine cover about the period of détente? How is the tone of this cover different? What can be inferred from this cartoon about the period of détente?
Group Activity With a partner, re-read the “Attempts at Change” article, as well as the article titled “The Collapse of Communism” Complete the cause & effect chart, for each of the events listed (the first one has been done for you). Draw an image/symbol for each event in the middle column. Individually, draw a conclusion/summarize what you’ve learned, by responding to the following question: Why did those living under Soviet control seek changes and what factors impacted their efforts?
Homework! Make sure you have completed the graphic organizer. Individually, respond to the conclusion prompt at the bottom of the organizer. You should be able to answer all study guide questions at this point, EXCEPT for 21, 25, 26, 27, & 28. We will discuss these in class next week, as well as during tutoring (WHICH IS MOVING TO WEDNESDAYS, 8 A.M.!) As always, if you need any of the documents used today, they can be found on my wiki Exam on USSR, Communism, and the Cold War during Session 63 (Friday, March 16 th for A day students, Monday, March 19 th for B day students).
