Product Description
This is more of a cultural look at the 1950s to complement the lessons on the Cold War. It starts with a timed presentation on William Levitt and the birth of suburbia after World War II. It then looks at various factors affecting America in the 1950s and pushing people toward increasing conformity and the seeds of protest against that conformity that would explode in the 1960s. Also included are picture essays on early TV and Fads of the 1950s.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and an extensive list of 50s slang terms.
