The Industrial Revolution - The Gilded Age - 1865-1900 PowerPoint
with Lecture Notes and video clips, is a great resource to add to your Gilded Age Unit. Lecture is 30 slides total with presenter notes to guide you through the lecture, help you to tell the whole story, and verbally assess and engage your students. PowerPoint also begins with a "Guess the Inventions" motivator and covers the rise of the railroads, electricity, steel, oil immigration and urbanization, robber barons, and big business tactics like monopolies. I have used these with regular, honors and AP classes.
Telephone - AT&T
Standard Oil Trust
Sherman Anti-trust Act
The Powerpoints contain lecture notes that helps you to tell the whole story, and question students on graphs, maps and primary source docs.
