The Vietnam War: Was Nixon Right to Expand the War to Cambodia & Laos 1970-71? (Edexcel GCSE)

The Vietnam War: Was Nixon Right to Expand the War to Cambodia & Laos 1970-71? (Edexcel GCSE)

The purpose of this lesson is for students to debate if Nixon was right to keep the invasions of Cambodia and Lao a secret from the US public during his Vietnamisation program. This skill is linked with final 16 mark statement questions found in papers 1 /2 &3. Studentts begin though a starter task of attempting to fill in a blank map completing the names of the countries, the Ho Chi Minh Trail, Gulf of Tonkin and any cities etc. Students are introduced to the invasion of Cambodia through a short video clip of Nixon's televised explanation (embedded). The main task revolves around the teaching and learning strategy of '6 monkeys'. All explained within the resource pack attached . After assessing the impact of this invasion in 1970 students are introduced to the invasion of Laos in 1971 and how the US public reacted to the news of these invasions. Students are to complete a short 4 mark source evaluation activity linked with the Kent State Shooting protest. After these tasks and debates students will be ready to form an overall judgment regarding the initial debate question: Was Nixon right to keep the invasions of Cambodia and Laos a secret from the US population? I have included an extension video showcasing a news report of how currently the US are attempting to get Cambodia to repay for the damages caused during the invasion (video embedded).
