Waging Peace: An Eisenhower Exhibit for the Classroom
Eisenhower and a crowd

For this group project, students will carefully read the texts of two of Eisenhower’s speeches and use them along with supporting sources to work in a group as museum curators. They will write captions for an exhibit that illustrates Eisenhower’s attitude toward foreign policy by selecting relevant quotations from the speeches and writing a few lines that describe the significance of the quotations.

“The essence of leadership is to get others to do something because they think you want it done and because they know it is worth while doing.”

Dwight Eisenhower
