This is a highly interactive PowerPoint to be used in conjunction with a Smart Board, and your notes, and as many social studies teachers do, a student centered notebook. I have my students do very specific activities and assessments throughout their notebooks during my PowerPoint to scaffold early material in the unit. Images and video are from various sources including the Library of Congress (The video is too large to include in the TpT version of the PowerPoint, but they are directly hyperlinked in the slide itself for EASY download!)
Highlighted words (Gold/Salmon color) are the definitions I have my students write down on their vocab sheets (Included for your editing). This PowerPoint includes some great activities and assessments including a section of The Jungle by Upton Sinclair with a Think, Pair, Share attached. It also has a wonderful activity for students to experience the assembly line process people experienced then, and continue to experience around the world today. This PowerPoint goes along, side-by-side, very well with Chapters 10 and 11 of Howard Zinn's A Young People's History of the United States - for those who use it as your text, as I do, with my 8th grade US History students.
