Korean and Vietnam War

This is a great resource to teach ELA and Social Studies! I am looking forward to being able to use this resource to teach my students to compare and contrast while incorporating the learning they need for Social Studies.

Excellent Resource

This item worked out really well with my students because it is to the point but detailed. Finding Clarendon has been a game changer.

Korean and Vietnam War

I was looking for material for my sophomore class that is struggling understanding the larger concepts of this topic. A large group of my students are not reading above a 5th grade reading level. I was so happy to find material that was relevant to my class and helped me modify the lesson so all of my students could understand. I am in my second year of teaching, and finding material that is REAL matters a lot.
