Bush's Eight Years in Office - Audio Slideshow

The BBC brings us another great resource for teaching current events and modern history. Today, I found the BBC's audio slideshow of George W. Bush's eight years in office. I'm not able to embed the slideshow, but you can view it by clicking on the image below which is linked to the BBC's website.

Applications for Education
Middle school and elementary school students will probably have little memory of the items mentioned from the beginning of Bush's time in office. That could be the stimulus for a short research assignment about events of the last eight years.
