- This PowerPoint presentation was created for 6th graders to complete during two, 45 - minute class periods. (It helped to better explain some content from student's textbooks and taught some new content.) This 30 - slide PowerPoint contains mostly color maps, artifact/ primary source photos, and easy to read lists.
- The second (2nd) slide in the presentation is a list of the four (4) Learning Objectives this presentation covers. (These could be cut and pasted right into any lesson plan as is.) The material is presented in chronological order to reinforce this Historical Thinking Skill (follow this link to read more about Historical Thinking Skills on the National Center for History in the Schools website: http://www.nchs.ucla.edu/Standards/historical-thinking-standards-1/overview). The PowerPoint has 17 slides that cover the Roman Republic period (509 B.C.E. - 27 B.C.E.) and 6 slides over the Roman Empire. (This presentation was written to fill content gaps in our textbook related to the Republic period more so than to teach Roman Empire content.)
- Here are some of the topics covered in the 17 Republic slides:
1.) Geography of Italy/ Italian Peninsula before Roman settlement.
2.) Roman social and government structures during this period.
3.) The "Twelve Tablesâ€ (written Roman laws) primary source.
4.) Early Roman achievements (the Forum, aqueducts, the Appian Way/ Roman system of roads, Colosseum, the Circus Maximus).
5.) Early Roman leaders such as Tiberius, Gaius Gracchus, Pompey, and Julius Caesar, for example.
- The Roman Empire slides cover these topics:
1.) Octavian Augustus - the first Roman Emperor.
2.) The meaning of "pax romanaâ€ with photos of artifacts from that period.
3.) A map showing the size of the Roman Empire at its height (about 14 C.E.)
4.) Changes to the size of the Roman road system since the Republic period (uses a map).
5.) A list of the legacies left to us by the Roman Empire.
- My 6th graders agreed that this PowerPoint really helped them understand this content. The PowerPoint features small sections of text for easy note - taking. (6th graders had no trouble.) A LOT of pictures, maps, and charts. The presentation would supplement most (or all) World History textbooks I've seen very well. This PowerPoint helps students "connect the dotsâ€ between the ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman civilizations.
- This PowerPoint has helped my students easily understand the Byzantine Empire content!!
WHAT YOU GET - Microsoft PowerPoint file (in .ppt format) with 30 slides. The presentation relates to the National History Standards mentioned in the Description paragraph above. The PowerPoint itself contains a title slide, an "Objectivesâ€ slide (slide #2) that lists the four learning objectives for this presentation (these could be copied from the PowerPoint and pasted directly into a lesson plan), and 28 content - related slides.
- The slides contain five (5) color maps that help explain the content for visual learners. There is a family tree that shows many generations of Octavian Augustus, Rome's first emperor. There are two (2) charts that help students understand Roman social structure during the Republic period (earliest Roman history).
