This 20-slide interactive powerpoint about The English Restoration Era is an excellent overview of the time period (1660-1798). The presentation contains a short quiz after each section to hold your students accountable as they take notes. Simply click through the slides moving at the appropriate pace for your class. The organized layout is designed so that all you need to do is call on students to read brief sections and then call on them to verbally answer questions during the "quizzes." The correct answers are provided. At the end of the presentation, students are prompted to write a journal that encompasses all the key points taught here.
The following topics are covered:
1. Historical Context (important points about the key monarchs and their influence)
2. Ideas of the Age (overview of the brilliant minds of the time such as Sir Isaac Newton)
3. Literature (This is the meat of the presentation! Key male and female writers, key works, and the genres of writing such as journalism and satire are explained.)
4. Fun Facts about the Era
