This lesson provides a narrative of the opening events of the French Revolution, tracing its progress from the tennis Court Oath and the storming of the Bastille through the reforms of the National Assembly. It ends with the attempts to pay off the Royal debt which would trigger rampant inflation and the near collapse of the revolution.
In the PowerPoint, the color flowchart develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. There are also extensive photos 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 with lots of details and interesting trivia.
