PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This presentation focuses on the Byzantine achievement, starting with the founding of Constantinople in 330 CE and ending at the empire's height in 1025.

I like to present many of the more tragic/epic events in history as timed slide shows that tell the story through pictures and text. Making this especially effective is accompanying it with music to set the proper mood. The effect I'm trying to achieve is the sort that Ken Burns creates in his documentaries.

When I first tried this approach, I was surprised at how much my students liked it. Therefore I've applied it to my lessons on the Byzantine Empire, the Crusades, the disastrous process and results of colonization in Africa, and virtually all my art slide lectures and major wars in history. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures.

Among the highlights are picture essays on how the city looked at the time, the spectacular mosaics in the monastery of Hosiou Lukas, and the Byzantine army.

This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
