The New Haven Public Schools Social Studies Department has recently updated the district standards.
This unit closely aligns with the following standards.
USII.7.1 Students will examine the rise of the Axis powers and the causes of World War II.
USII.8.1 Students will discuss the onset of the Cold War abroad and at home.
USII.8.6 Students will analyze the impact of the Cold War on American culture including McCarthyism and the Hollywood Ten.
The newest curriculum framework established by the district is chronologically established fort he US History II course. The course covers US History from reconstruction to the present day and is divided into nine units. My unit would fit, both thematically and chronologically, in a study of Foreign Policy in the Post WWII Era.
