This past Friday was the thirty-fifth anniversary of the ending of the Vietnam War. I don’t have time tonight to develop a complete “The Best…” list on the topic, but because it’s timely and many of my students are refugees because of the war, I wanted to pull together a few resources and I and others could use on Monday.
I’ll be adding many more links to this list, and welcome your suggestions.
Here is a very beginning of a list of The Best Resources To Learn About The Vietnam War (and are accessible to English Language Learners):
I have many accessible resources on the Vietnam War post of my United States History Class blog.
A Look Back at the Vietnam War on the 35th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon is a series of photos from The Denver Post.
How Stuff Works has many videos on the Vietnam War.
PBS has a timeline of the war along with other resources.
The New York Times Learning Network has many resources on The Fall of Saigon.
The Guardian has an interactive timeline of the war.
CBS News has an interactive on the Fall of Saigon.
Reuters has a video showing how Vietnam is recognizing the anniversary.
Vietnam, 35 years later is the title of a series of photos from the Boston Globe’s Big Picture.
The Associated Press has an interactive showing results from a poll they did in Vietnam.
“The Price Of Freedom: Americans At War” is a Smithsonian multimedia interactive on each war in United States’ history. Videos (with transcript), images and text are included.
From War To Diplomacy is an interactive timeline from Radio Free Asia about Vietnam from 1954 to the present.
