Please check out the class book cart for this assignment. There are many great books on Vietnam, including the following:
I CAN: evaluate sources for their reliability.
I CAN: identify and apply correct citations per MLA guidelines.
I CAN: use notecards to organize my research.
Conduct your research based on the following topics. Your chosen articles can be about a specific person, platoon, battle, situation, decision - there’s a lot of freedom here.

Entrance into Vietnam
Pulling out of Vietnam
A lack of clear goals
Underestimation (of the topography, of the advice of experts)
An incorrect belief in the Domino Theory
