This new product (as of June 2016) includes 6 pgs of text and 16 power point slides. The text is a concise, clear, organized review of the break-up of the USSR, focusing on Mikhail Gorbachev's policies.
The power point slides are political cartoons which you can use with your students after going over the 6 pages of text. Students will enjoy deciphering the cartoons in groups.
