The 1950s Unit includes 1950s PowerPoints
with short video links, primary source worksheets or informational text analysis, video/video guide, review game and assessment all bound together with daily lesson plans. Just copy and paste plans into yours! Each lesson begins with a warm-up, and continues with PowerPoint notes, primary source activity and an exit ticket. Unit also includes a Kahoot!
online review game and editable assessment that can be given as an open note quiz or test. This is a relatively short unit. Much of the 1950s is covered in the Cold War Entire Unit
and this unit includes a few slides from my Civil Rights Unit
PowerPoint notes include lecture notes to guide you through the presentation. I have used these lectures with AP, Honors and regular students. 1950s PowerPoints
