Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid History!
This 333 slide PowerPoint ranks as one of my all-time favorites. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion. This PowerPoint could be used in its entirety or broken up into smaller presentations focused on absolutism in Spain and France, Louis XIV, English Civil War, Peter the Great and more.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. The Rise of Royal Power
II. Absolutism in Spain
III. Absolutism in France
IV. England's Constitutional Monarchy
V. The Dutch Republic in the 1600s
VI. Absolutism in Eastern Europe
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 17 years into my teaching career, it is these PowerPoints that keep me enthusiastically greeting every class I teach.
