Like FC.087A & FC.087B, this is an image driven presentation of 68 slides, covering the tragic civil conflicts known as the French Wars of Religion. Along with the big causes of conflict, it also looks at the little ones, like loud singing and baptising dogs in fountains. Particular attention is given to the Saint Bartholomew's Massacre and the career of the Protestant leader, Henry of Navarre, who puts an end to the wars by converting to Catholicism, saying "Paris is worth a mass." Henry then lays the foundations for the absolute monarchy of his grandson, Louis XIV.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
NOTE: If this Powerpoint doesn’t come in the new color scheme, it comes with one slide that has the whole flowchart in the newer color scheme, if you want to convert the other slides. I’m in the process of converting all the Powerpoints to the new color scheme over the next year. Check the free preview to see if this particular lesson has been converted yet.
