History Points: The Cuban Missile Crisis

October 24, 1945

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Gathering together all sorts of resources to understand this confusing period in American history, The New York Times in conjunction with John F. Kennedy Library and Presidential Museum has put together  a great resource for teaching high school students about the 13 day standoff. You can read a brief introduction to the events here. Once you've read that, I would recommend checking out the interactive website here. The Times has also put together a fantastic archive of photographs from the era that really brings this whole era and event to life. 

And don't forget to check out our sale! It's a great opportunity to build that family library and try some study guides you've been wanting to check out.
