Has the Wall Truly Tumbled Down? Exploring the Destruction of the Berlin Wall and the Invisible Barriers that Remain

http://www.nytimes.com/learning/teachers/lessons/19991110wednesday.html?searchpv=learning_lessons

Description: Examine the events behind the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the continued struggles to truly unify the former East Germany and West Germany. In small groups, research the possible views of people living in East Germany and West Germany while the Berlin Wall still stood, then explore perspectives on numerous aspects of life in Germany as well as views towards other countries. Create characters based on your research, who then "meet people" from the other side of the Wall and document the meeting in a written piece. Standards 10.9.5, and 11.9.3
