This lesson, instead of following a sequence of events, shows the Marxist view of history, explaining the how it believed capitalism would destroy itself. It finally assesses the impact of Marxism, how Marx was right in some ways and wrong in others.
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.
