Spies in the East
About the unit plan
Do you like spy movies? Many of them are set during the Cold War, the period that followed World War II. During the Cold War, tensions between the communist East and the democratic West rose, and over decades both sides were getting ready for a war. Fortunately, the conflict never escalated into war. Instead, there was a silent battle over information. It was an era of spies and secret listening devices.
In this unit plan, you will play the roles of American spies in East Berlin. Don't be fooled, this is not your average English class – you are on a mission! Make your way through the city and solve riddles along the way. Hopefully, you will complete your secret mission. Are you ready?
