Product Description
This dynamic presentation on the Fall of the Soviet Union provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. Your students will thoroughly understand this world changing event.

The fall of the U.S.S.R. was the final act of Communism in Europe. It brought to an end decades of Cold War with the West and ushered in a new era of hope at the end of the 20th century. The reasons for the fall of one of the world's superpowers are complex and the ramifications are still being played out today.

This presentation examines the following topics:
♦ Stagnation of the Soviet economy
♦ Mikhail Gorbachev
♦ Glasnost and Perestroika
♦ Renunciation of the Brezhnev Doctrine
♦ Fall of communism in Easter Europe
♦ Fall of the Berlin Wall
♦ Soviet Coup 1991
♦ Boris Yeltsin
♦ Commonwealth of Independent States
♦ External Factors - Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II

There are six links within the presentation to Youtube. The videos total ~26 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.

This lesson takes me approximately two 60 minute periods to complete when I discuss and debate with the students.
