This fantastic PowerPoint Lesson begins with the era of "detente" and the cooling off period of the Cold War during the 1970's and continues through the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Each slide is visually engaging and covers essential pieces of information simply for students to understand. Topics include the SALT Treaties, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, internal problems of the Soviet Union, glasnost, perestroika, President Reagan, his Brandenburg Gate speech, & the collapse of the Soviet Union. Two embedded videos help students understand the widespread appeal of President Reagan as well.
This is a great way to help students understand in simple terms why the Soviet Union collapsed and how America won the Cold War!
