Essentially this is my Korean War and Cold War PowerPoints combined along with guided notes, handouts, several video sheets, a review Jeopardy game and a test/key. Note, the Vietnam War is NOT included in this Bundle... that's an entirely separate unit.
The PowerPoint has bellwork and discussion questions, animations, quotes, visuals, political cartoons, video links, etc. It covers the fundamental social, economic, and political differences between the USSR and the USA. Then it goes into the origins of the Cold War, Truman Doctrine, Marshall Plan, Berlin Blockade and Airlift, Berlin Wall, NATO and Warsaw Pact, UN, uprisings in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, Domino Theory, Chinese Civil War, Korean War, Red Scare and McCarthyism, HUAC, the Rosenbergs and Alger Hiss, Interstate Highway System, Race to Space, U-2 Spy Plane Incident, Eisenhower's Presidency, Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis, Arms Race, Kennedy's Administration and Assassination, American Intervention in the Middle East and Latin America, Che Guevara, Mikail G. and the fall of the wall, the Tankman, etc.
It is neatly organized and flows well. Look for the asterisks next to certain terms, people, etc... those are there for students to underline/highlight for the test, which means you don't need a review sheet because it's all there in the notes!
The notes are concise allowing students to focus on the lesson. They also have built in bellworks and focus questions. Please note they contain the content, but not quotes, supplemental information, etc. Basically, everything you need without dragging the kids down in detail.
