Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid History!
This 194 slide PowerPoint synthesizes the many strands of history that both define the Industrial Revolution and represent key results of this major event. Because of its enormous impact on the modern world, the Industrial Revolution can be very tricky to teach. Students need to walk away truly understanding the many consequences of these changes. 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 would be perfect for a World or Global History class, AP European History or AP World History class, or could even be modified for use at the college level.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. Britain's Industrial Revolution
II. The Spread of Industrialization
III. Social Effects of Industrialization
IV. Classical British Economic Theory
V. Working-Class Protest in Britain
VI. The Rise of Socialism
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.
