Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid History!
This 297 slide PowerPoint represents years of work. The French Revolution is one of the most complex and difficult to teach subjects in history. After years of research and revisions, this presentation is my best shot at making this subject as student-friendly as possible. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion. This Powerpoint could be used in its entirety or broken up into smaller presentations on things like the Reign of Terror or Napoleon.
Too many PowerPoints offer one-dimensional, teacher-centric presentations that are more technologically inclined than blackboards and chalk but basically do the same thing. My PowerPoints are designed to add a three-dimensional quality to teaching history. In addition to the class notes, I include the images, primary and secondary sources, charts and graphs, and other material that you would want to use in your lesson. What this PowerPoint does is bring them all together in one coherent presentation. These presentations have taken years to refine but 17 years into my teaching career, it is these PowerPoints that keep me enthusiastically greeting every class I teach.
