This is a history assignment, although I have used it in an English classroom. The slideshow provides students with a definition of technology and then takes them on a visual trip through the past century. Each slide shows a category of then and now images, such as, transportation, clothing, games/for fun, and chores (12 different categories).
As you stop on each slide, provide students with facts, stories, and other examples in lecture format. Let students ask questions! During the lecture, students should listen and take notes - writing or typing as you speak. I provide students with a COPY OF this slideshow through Google Classroom; students type their notes at the bottom of each slide.
