1960s Counterculture & Vietnam Self-Quiz

Through this stand-alone instructional resource (StAIR), high school students will be able to quiz themselves on key terms and events during the 1960s Counterculture and Vietnam War era to help test their readiness for an end-of-unit assessment or semester final exam.  While terms are not and should not be the ultimate end goal of any unit or lesson, mastering their definition and significance is essential in order for students to produce a high-level analysis of the time period. The intended learners are 11th grade students enrolled in a standard U.S. History course.  The lesson could also be utilized with students in advanced or AP courses as well.  Teachers could also use the StAIR as part of their introduction to a unit on the 1960s Counterculture and Vietnam, in addition to offering to...

Wow..this is a very well thought out presentation and also quite user-friendly.  I appreciate how the quiz is broken down into three sections, including; People, Events, and Terms, Concepts and Things.  It is an easy way to access the information the individual needs to quiz themselves on in order to better prepare for the assessment. 

I also really like the fact that if you click on the wrong answer, there is a meaningful explanation as to why that answer was possibly chosen and where to go from that point.  It even gives you additional information when you choose the correct answer.  I found this very helpful as I navigated my way through the presentation.

Personally, I found this StAIR very resourceful, full of great information and quotes, and incredibly well laid out.

Technical Remarks:

The presentation is very appealing to the eye, easy to navigate, and all of the links work marvelously!  A job well done!

The 1960's is such an interesting period in time.   The way this resource navigates and teaches information is amazing!  I love the way you sorted things into categories (people, events, terms).  It's helpful for students sometimes to have things sorted for them if they are struggling to make meaning of so many ideas.  

One consideration for this project would be to add video and audio.  For example, the questions that have quotes or talk about musicians would be great areas to add in media so students can further connect the knowledge.

This is outstanding!!!

Technical Remarks:

The navigation is fabulous... I didn't find any gaps or missing links. Great job!
