Assignment Instructions for Students
The fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989 is considered the end of the Cold War; America was declared the winner. Some historians argue that this always was the determined outcome of the war, while others argue that America's victory was not predetermined, but the result of decisions made in the 1980s by Ronald Reagan.
For this assignment, you are going to create a 3-5 minute TED Talk-style video where you are the world's leading expert on the Cold War. Your talk will be on this statement: America's winning of the Cold War was inevitable. In your presentation, you will either agree or disagree with this statement and provide two reasons why.
Your reasons should be grounded in fact and based on what you have learned in the course. Be sure to explain how and why your reasons support your stance. Use at least one visual aid in your presentation, like a poster or PowerPoint slides. Submit your presentation as a video file or Youtube link.
