This is a presentation on the Vietnam War. It is class and student tested, and works well. It goes over the causes of the war, as well as the Gulf of Tonkin crisis, the escalation of the war, Tet offensive, Johnson, Nixon and the pressure of the anti war movement (Kent State ) , to the final withdrawal of US troops in 1975.
52 slides targeted at 11th and 12th grade high school students. I would allow 2 class periods ( 50 minutes x2), although it may go longer.
There are text slides, maps, questions to think about, and images, links and video links all through out the presentation. All links were operating as of Feb 2014.Slides can easily be edited or hidden.
