Research McCarthyism

I want you to complete some research on McCarthyism by Tuesday, 1/19. This should be approximately a page in length, and should include original writing that summarizes or paraphrases the information you have found. I encourage you to quote from the sources you use, but DO NOT rely only on material copied from your research. Your research should include:



  • demonstrate an understanding of the important individuals during this time

  • contributing social factors of McCarthyism

  • how these events built into a significant conflict

  • an understanding of the lessons that resulted from the McCarthy communist hunt
