Lesson on the Unfolding Conflict in Ukraine

The New York Times Learning Network has published a lesson on the Russian invasion of Ukraine in the hope that it can both help students understand what has led to the “most significant European war in almost 80 years” and encourage them to follow along as the news develops.

In the lesson, “The Invasion of Ukraine: How Russia Attacked and What Happens Next,” students learn about the unfolding conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and consider what is at stake for the rest of the world. They can follow the story via live updates as Ukraine and the rest of the world reacts to a military action that threatens serious consequences for the security structure that governed Europe since the 1990s. For additional background, an earlier lesson helps explain key concepts, such as the Soviet Union, the Cold War, and NATO.

“The Invasion of Ukraine” lesson includes an Overview, a Warm-Up (which uses the earlier lesson), Questions for Writing and Discussion, and suggestions for Going Further, including economic implications and historical connections.
