High-5-Achievers presents a 37 slide PowerPoint presentation that provides an historical overview of the Vietnam War: its beginnings, the key players, the cultural influences on the war and, finally, the aftermath of America's involvement in Vietnam. Many of the slides contain speaker notes which the teacher may use to provide background information to the students. This PowerPoint can be taught as a stand-alone history lesson or presented in conjunction with the teaching of Tim O'Brien's memoir, The Things They Carried. Depending on the length of the class period, this presentation can take anywhere from two to three days.
