A PowerPoint file containing 12 presentations for a World History unit titled “An Age of Revolutions.” This PowerPoint includes lessons on the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Latin American Independence.
The PowerPoint file is 115 slides in length. It includes 12 individual lessons, which in my classroom provides for 21 days of instruction:
2.1 France and the Old Regime - 2 days
2.2 The Outbreak of Revolution in France (1789) - 1 day
2.3 The Bastille and the National Assembly - 1 day
2.4 Varennes, Division and War - 2 days
2.5 The Second French Revolution - 2 days
2.6 The Republic of Virtue and the Reign of Terror - 3 days
2.7 The Rise of Napoleon Bonaparte and the French Consulate - 2 days
2.8 Napoleonic Rule, Reform, and Empire - 2 days
2.9 The Collapse of Napoleon’s Empire - 3 days
2.10 The Hundred Days - 1 day
2.11 The Congress of Vienna - 1 day
2.12 Latin American Independence - 1 day
Also included in this download is a 13-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the 12 lessons. In my classroom, students take Cornell style notes on the right side in their interactive notebooks; their corresponding visuals pages are glued on the left. These activities are completed before (vocabulary), during (visual labeling), and after (writing, thinking maps, etc.) completion of the presentation.
If you would like to download a full-preview for free of one of my units, in order to get an idea of the types of things you might find in them, please do a search on TpT for my unit, titled “The Birth of Democracy.”
An alternate, additional one-day lesson for this unit - titled “Where do you fall on the Political Spectrum?” - can be found as a stand alone download on TpT.
