A slideshow consisting of mostly pictures to be analyzed by students in lecture form. This introduces the historical background of the United States' economic policies and government's interaction with the policy. A separate file in my shop will include notes for students. Another file will also include the directions for the Day 2 economic debate activity included in this slide. This activity was originally intended for an AP Government course, but could be used in US History or Economics. Information for the slideshow was gleaned from "AP Government and Politics is American Government Roots and Reform" by Karen O'Connor et al.
