Also included in this download is a 18-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the 17 lessons. In my classroom, students take Cornell style notes on the right side in their interactive notebooks; their corresponding visuals pages are glued on the left. These activities are completed before (vocabulary), during (visual labeling), and after (writing, thinking maps, etc.) completion of the presentation.

If you would like to download a full-preview for free of one of my units, in order to get an idea of the types of things you might find in them, please do a search on TpT for my
unit titled “The Birth of Democracy.”

*There are references throughout the presentations to DVD clips I show during some of my presentations. These clips cannot, of course, be included with your download. Below is a list of the DVDs that I use:
- CNN: The Cold War
- PBS: The Last Days in Vietnam
- Clips from Hollywood films: The Red Violin

Thank you for downloading my lessons! Your feedback is always welcome.
