If you are looking for SECOND SEMESTER OF US HISTORY

Here is what is included in this 40 page download:

0. Facts about the decade: Some interesting facts I have included about the decade sheet.

1. Chapter Preview Sheets: I do these with every chapter to allow the students to at least see what we are going to be studying before the unit begins. I have included 2 different versions of the Chapter Preview sheet. The chapter preview sheets take about 20 minutes to do in class. It is a good this to do on a day that a test is being gone over or while doing a Pre-test for the Cold War.

2. Pre-test and Post-test: To help see where students are at with things before and after the presentation.

3. COLD WAR PPT: The Cold War should be started with a Pre-test on the Cold War. and then begin with the 1950's 36 slide PPT. This is meant to be taught over the course of 3 days. and includes a student note taking guide so that students will be able to follow along easier. I have also included a second version of the PPT for another option. (3 days)

1. Pre-Test
2. Cold War 36 slides (3 days) ( 2 versions)
3. Both PPT's have video included in the download. The videos will have to be manually put in the PPT as sometimes the videos do not stay on the slides when uploaded and downloaded.

4. 13 Days Movie: I start the Cuban Missile Crisis using the Stanford Lesson materials, which are free. (Day 1)

5. Discussion Day: This is a great day to do an in class discussion on the concepts that have been taught over the last week. Give the students 20 minutes to write their own answers and then have them discuss for 20 minutes. (1 Day)

This is my 3 day PowerPoint with the notes sheet that I use to keep the students accountable. It is great as it walks the students through all the highlights.

In addition I also show the movie 13 days and (1) I Love Lucy program.

I really enjoy teaching the 1950's and hope this helps in your teaching the students the basics of the unit.
