Teach with Movies - The Cold War

Are you looking for a way to keep your history students engaged  -  even when they are not in school? A great way to do this is to have your students watch films related to the current unit of study.  For each unit, I give my students a list of films my students could watch for extra credit. After they view the film they are required to complete a set of questions that will help them connect the movie to the current course of study. Get this FREE worksheet by clicking HERE

Below are a list of films I suggest when teaching the Cold War. 

Bridge of Spies
The Killing Fields
Inherit the Wind
Fail Safe
For Love of Country
A Gentleman's Agreement
Dr. Strangelove
Desert Bloom
The Crucible: 1957 version
Apollo 13 
Hiroshima Maiden
Force More Powerful
Seven Years in Tibet
War and Peace
Seven Days in May
The Russian's are Coming!
The Right Stuff
October Sky 
October Sky 
Quiz Show 
The Right Stuff 
Born on the Fourth of July 
Letters Home from Vietnam

Instructional Teaching Strategies for ANY Classroom

As a master teacher for over 10 years, I make sure my student teachers practice as many instructional strategies as possible during their time with me. I want to make sure they have plenty of "tools" in their "toolbox" to take with them once they complete their student teaching experience. This year I decided to create a document that included a list of diverse and engaging teaching strategies my student teachers could refer to when creating their lesson plans. Recently I uploaded this product to TpT so other teachers (new and veteran) could make use of it too!


This purchase includes 70 teaching strategies that could be used in ANY classroom or grade level. This is a must-have whether you are a new or experienced teacher. Free updates for life!

Instructional Strategies Include:
Gain Prior Knowledge Strategies
Debate- Discussion-Oral Language Practice

Review Strategies

Happy Teaching!
