Dwight Eisenhower

Assuming the Presidency at the depth of the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt helped the American people regain faith in themselves. He brought hope as he promised prompt, vigorous action, and asserted in his Inaugural Address, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."


Lesson Plans | Primary Sources


Lesson Plans:

Eisenhower: The Conentious 1950s - Students will discover the United States faced several significant domestic and international problems in the 1950s, and that the population and politicians held conflicting opinions on these issues.

Eisenhower: The Cold War - Students will understand that press conferences with politicians can be adversarial. Reporters may skew the news by playing up certain parts of a news conference and playing down other parts.

Thaw in the Cold War: Eisenhower and Krushchev - The lesson could be used in American history units on the Cold War, or in government and world affairs courses for units on negotiation and conflict resolution. Students will sharpen their skills in using primary documents and in interpreting maps and visual data.

Message Drafted by General Eisenhower in Case the D-Day Invasion Failed and Photographs Taken on D-Day - Using this lesson will allow students to demonstrate understanding of World War II and how the Allies prevailed.


Primary Source Documents:

General Dwight D. Eisenhower's Order of the Day: 1944 -The order was issued to encourage all soldiers to take part in the D-Day invasion.
