Visually-Stunning 464 slide PowerPoint with Rock-Solid United States History!
I teach AP United States History but my PowerPoints are used by all the U.S. History teachers in my school. It’s perfect for whatever level you teach.
This giant 464 slide PowerPoint carefully explores the most important domestic and foreign affairs developments from 1945 to 1968. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. The Postwar Economic Boom
II. The Cold War Begins
III. The Korean War
IV. The Red Scare of the 1950s
V. The Civil Rights Movement
VI. JFK and The Election of 1960
VII. The Vietnam War Begins
VIII. The Cuban Missile Crisis
IX. LBJ and the Great Society
X. The Election of 1968
XI. The 1960s Counterculture
Too many PowerPoints offer one-dimensional, teacher-centric presentations that are more technologically inclined than blackboards and chalk but basically do the same thing. My PowerPoints are designed to add a three-dimensional quality to teaching history. In addition to the class notes, I include the images, primary and secondary sources, charts and graphs, and other material that you would want to use in your lesson. What this PowerPoint does is bring them all together in one coherent presentation. These presentations have taken years to refine but 17 years into my teaching career, it is these PowerPoints that keep me enthusiastically greeting every class I teach.
