Please Note: While most of the major tensions between the United States and Soviet Union surfaced during World War II, some of the roots of the conflict stretch back even further. This lesson ONLY discusses World War II and its immediate aftermath.
Research the background of the topics listed in step one, including how each topic created tension between the two nations.
Determine potential solutions to each individual topic and the overarching mistrust that developed as a result of such a larger group of factors.
Create a narrative that outlines and explains what steps the United States and Soviet Union should have taken to avoid the Cold War.
Develop a creative presentation of your narrative. If possible, you should utilize a multimedia tool using images and available video.
