Website Spotlight: Gulf War
Website URL: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/gulf/
Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight a quality website 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.
Oral History: Interviews with key persons:
Colin Powell, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense
General Norman Schwarzkopf
Map: Overview of the Middle East
Map: Kuwaiti Theater
Weapons and Technology (click on the ones that interest you)
War Story: U.S. female pilot is captured by the Iraqis
War Story: British Commando Andy McNab
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.
