1950s Culture Powerpoint
This Lecture is my FAVORITE lecture that I give all year. The PowerPoint centers around 1950s Culture (Consumerism, GI Bill, Suburbs, Highways, Housewives, Beatniks, Greasers, Conformity, Baby Boom, etc...). The content and visuals are engaging by themselves but to make it more interactive and fun I link the lesson to Back to the Future. Embedded are stopping points for groups to compete, to help out Marty. My kids LOVE this lecture and so do I.
Also included are:
-CORNELL fill-in-the-blank guided notes
-Checking for understanding questions
