This product from English Love includes two slideshows about American Rationalism --one created in Keynote (for Macs) and one in PowerPoint (for PCs).
Playful and informative, these slideshows are perfect for introducing a unit of literature or pieces like The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin or "Speech to the Virginia Convention." Also included is a reproducible handout for students to take fill-in-the-blank notes.
If you like this product, check out my similar slideshows on Puritanism, Romanticism, Dark Romanticism, Transcendentalism, Realism, and Modernism. These offer a fabulous thematic structure for a chronological year-long study of American literature!
