PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 29 slide Power Point is intended to cover the entire chapter leading up to the Revolutionary War-from just after the French and Indian War all the way up through the Battle of Bunker Hill. This is probably the most comprehensive presentation I've made to date, and it includes tons of hyperlinks. I have done all the research for you and included links to informational websites as well as interactive games and timelines.

I used this for all of my teaching of this part of history, and incorporated cooperative structures and critical thinking discussions to have students discuss the main points. The notes section on each slide contains information on hyperlinks, background information that will be helpful to the teacher, and higher level questions that you can ask students. For high school students, it would be a great overview of the causes of the American Revolution, and for middle school students, it is a pretty comprehensive view of this time period in history.

I ask students to consider viewpoints quite a bit throughout this unit. For example, we look at two paintings of the Boston Massacre, and note the differences, together with the indisputable facts about the event. We discuss how the British point-of-view differed from that of the colonists. As Americans, we find it easy to see everything from the colonists' point of view. I ask students to consider the viewpoints of the British and the loyalists, as well.

I should mention that many of these slides contain custom animations, overlays, and fades. This means that when you look at the slides in edit mode, they'll look a little funny. Rest assured, though, that these slides will work perfectly when in slide show mode. I just like to have pictures and text boxes fade in and out to increase the visual appeal of the lesson. Keeping students' attention during history class is hard, and this kind of presentation increases student engagement.

Hi Melissa, The file is downloading as a word document instead of a powerpoint. I am not sure why that is, but is it possible to send it to me again or maybe email it?
Thank you!

I downloaded this to my laptop. How do you play it? I mean, I figured you would be able to click on an amount and it would display the question. I'm not seeing it.

On  August 11, 2011Melissa Eaton answered:
Click on an amount? I am not sure what you mean. Just open up PowerPoint and watch it in slideshow mode. These slides look weird in edit mode. Email me if you are still having problems at mdw3437@yahoo.com
