Cold War in the 50’s: Eisenhower, Nuclear Threats, and Paranoia is the follow up to my other PowerPoint “The Cold War Begins- The Truman Years”. Cold War in the 50’s -goes over the US Home-front in the 1950’s during the Cold War.
It includes images, maps and text notes on slides for students. Also teacher notes and extra information are included on “note view “for many slides. This presentation was used for many years in class, and revised yearly. It holds the class interest and brings up a lot of discussion.
