Our Favorite Things We've Made (part four!)




Alicia has this to say about a PowerPoint presentation she ushered forth into the world called "The Reagan Revolution and the 1980s":

"The Reagan Revolution and the 1980s PowerPoint is much more than leg warmers, leotards, and shoulder pads--although we couldn't possibly leave all those crazy '80s fads out! Reminisce as you relive the days when 'Thriller' moves ruled the dance floor, the Smurfs found their way onto your TV set every Saturday morning, and you purchased your first 'car phone.'"

"Students can learn about Ronald Reagan, the man who was president while all this was going on. Follow along on his journey from humble beginnings in Iowa, to his acting days in Hollywood, to his emergence on the political scene, and to his years in the White House. Teach your students the definition of 'Reaganomics' and show them its triumphs and downfalls. Examine the Iran-Contra Scandal, the end of the Cold War, and the effects of being a 'Great Communicator.'"








It's a great piece. We even have a game to go with it!

We hope you'll check it out and let us know what you think.
