PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint presentation provides students with an introduction to the arguments presented in Thomas Paine's book "Common Sense." Emphasis is given to the ideas that the American colonies were too far away to be governed by England, that England was a mere island and should not govern a continent, and that the American colonies did not need England financially.

The presentation is saved using an Office 97-2003 format and includes custom animation.

The file also includes a brief biography on Thomas Paine, complete with questions about the reading.

DO NOT buy this! There are only FIVE slides and one of them is cluttered with pics, so you can't read the text!! Big, huge WASTE of time!!

Wow! How very uncool of you. I am curious as to why you would complain that the presentation is only five slides when it CLEARLY states that in the product description.

Additionally, you claim that the pictures "clutter" the text. The custom animation that I placed on each slide directs the pictures to fade in and out with each click of either the space bar or a PPT remote. As such, whatever "clutter" you see will not be present when you actually run the presentation.

I would advise actually running through the presentation before you trash my work.

Ridiculous. 5 slides of gibberish.
On  October 4, 2012Around the World in 180 Days answered:
Wow! Sorry to hear you had issues with this. Perhaps you could be a little more constructive in your criticism. Was something missing? Something you would like to have seen instead? I can always make changes, if needed.

Thanks.
