Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid World History!
I have been teaching AP World History for several years and my PowerPoints represent those many years of research into the course and the history. These PowerPoints took a full two years to complete and will serve as the basis of my AP World Course for years to come. The information provided comes from the course framework provided by CollegeBoard, the AMSCO review book, and many other textbooks and review guides.
This massive 437 slide PowerPoint carefully explores early modern age. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, and maps.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
• Catalysts of Maritime Trade
• The Voyages of Zheng He
• The Voyages of the Portuguese
• The Voyages of Columbus
• The Spanish in the Americas
• The Competition for North America
• The Columbian Exchange
• The Atlantic Economy
• New World Labor Systems and the Slave Trade
• Continuities and Changes in the Global Trade Network
• The Renaissance
• The Commercial Revolution
• The Protestant Reformation
• The Catholic Reformation and Religious Wars
• The Consolidation of Spain
• The Rise of Absolutism in France
• England’s Limited Monarchy

• The Scientific Revolution
• The Ming Dynasty of China
• The Qing Dynasty of China
• The Tokugawa Shogunate in Japan
• The Ottoman Empire
• The Safavid Empire
• The Mughal Dynasty of India
Too many PowerPoints offer one-dimensional, teacher-centric presentations that are more technologically inclined than blackboards and chalk but basically do the same thing. My PowerPoints are designed to add a three-dimensional quality to teaching history. In addition to the class notes, I include the images, primary and secondary sources, charts and graphs, and other material that you would want to use in your lesson. What this PowerPoint does is bring them all together in one coherent presentation. These presentations have taken years to refine but 19 years into my teaching career, it is these PowerPoints that keep me enthusiastically greeting every class I teach.
