OCR Depth Study USA Rise and Fall of McCarthy

A lesson which incorporates some knowledge on the government’s response to the Red Scare - as the lesson starts off with a simple bingo game!
Students have to pick 3 out of the list of 7 and then have to guess by the clues if they have bingo or not! The answers are on the subsequent slides.

There is then a link to a clip about the rise of McCarthy and some questions on a slide that can be printed out for students to use to make notes from.

There is then a task which requires students to identify the different groups of people who did try to challenge McCarthy.

The final activities involve answering some Questions using the text book and then drawing a leg and making a note of the legacy of McCarthy.

A fun and easy lesson to help students understand the period where American citizens had their rights and freedoms trampled for the sake of their rights and freedoms.
