Product Description
Visually-Stunning 582 slide PowerPoint with Rock-Solid United States History!

I teach AP United States History but my PowerPoints are used by all the U.S. History teachers in my school. It’s perfect for whatever level you teach.

The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion.

I. America in a Postwar World
• The Postwar Economic Boom
• The Cold War Begins
• The Korean War
• The Red Scare of the 1950s
II. The Eisenhower Era (1953-1961)
• The Civil Rights Movement
• The 1950s Economy and Culture
III. The Stormy Sixties (1960-1968)
• JFK and The Election of 1960
• The Vietnam War Begins
• The Cuban Missile Crisis
• LBJ and the Great Society
• The Election of 1968
• The 1960s Counterculture
IV. The Stalemated Seventies
• The Stagnant 70s Economy
• The Vietnam War Ends
• The Nixon Presidency
• The Watergate Scandal
• The Ford & Carter Presidencies

Too many PowerPoints offer one-dimensional, teacher-centric presentations that are more technologically inclined than blackboards and chalk but basically do the same thing. My PowerPoints are designed to add a three-dimensional quality to teaching history. In addition to the class notes, I include the images, primary and secondary sources, charts and graphs, and other material that you would want to use in your lesson. What this PowerPoint does is bring them all together in one coherent presentation. These presentations have taken years to refine but 17 years into my teaching career, it is these PowerPoints that keep me enthusiastically greeting every class I teach.
