Condensed lesson summarizing the changing U.S. culture during the 1960's and 1970's. Topics include: Antiwar Protests, Counter Culture and Hippies, Hawks & Doves, Kent State Tragedy, 26th Amendment, POW's, Watergate, and the 1973 Energy Crisis. Includes editable PowerPoint, coordinating student infographic style note taking sheets, links to optional YouTube video content, and a teacher's answer key.
I use this as an introduction before doing the 1968 Time Warp interactive activity with my students and I wrap it up by showing the pilot episode from the Wonder Years television show.
This product does not go into depth with battles or military strategies of the Vietnam War. Other products in my store provide more in depth analysis of Vietnam. Check out my hands-on History Mystery to provide students with primary and secondary sources to better understand the Vietnam War.
