A History of Diplomacy is an instructional package providing an overview of American diplomacy as it evolved from the colonial period through the present day. The package is based on a video (not included here) presented in two parts: the first half ends with World War II, while the second half spans the period 1945 through the present day. This package includes the video script, a timeline, glossary, suggested lessons and extension activities, website links, and other support material. Lessons focus on history, civics, geography, economics, and culture. The lessons and materials support American history, government, or modern world history courses.
