Website Spotlight: Berlin Airlift

Website URL:

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.


I ask the students to work through the following links:

In the "Further Reading" section, the suggested web links are especially well

II. Special Features

All three features--Online Poll, Newspaper Accounts, and The Chocolate Pilot--
are worthwhile.

III. People & Events

Don't miss the sketch of Gail Halversen.

IV. Maps

These four interactive maps are the best part of this entire website.

V. Timeline

Wonderfully-detailed chronology with effective annoations of each date.


Concluding Note:

I hope you will use this blog post in conjunction with both the modules on my Learning Professor wiki and the numerous other posts in my Website Spotlight series.
