Product Description
This Powerpoint starts with a timed presentation of images from the turn of the twentieth century and commentary on the underlying stresses facing Europe at that time. The flowchart then unfolds to give analysis of the broader forces creating heightened tensions. Finallly, it discusses the chain reaction of events from the assassination of Franz Ferdinand to the escalation of the crisis from a local affair to a world war. Emphasis is given to Germany's geopolitical position and the Schlieffen Plan developed to deal with it.

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.
