A PowerPoint file containing nine presentations for an AP European History unit titled “The Age of Absolutism.”
The PowerPoint file is 71 slides in length. It includes nine individual lessons, which in my classroom provides for 15 days of instruction:
14.1 Background to the Age of Absolutism - 1 day
14.2 French Absolutism: The Nobility vs the Monarchy - 1 day
14.3 French Absolutism: Here Comes the Sun King - 2 days
14.4 The Emergence of Russia - 3 days
14.5 Magna Carta and the Limited Monarchy - 1 day
14.6 The Stuart Ascension to the English Throne - 1 day
14.7 Charles I and the English Civil War - 2 days
14.8 Oliver Cromwell and the Puritan Republican Dictatorship - 2 days
14.9 Restoration of the English Monarchy & the Glorious Revolution - 2 days
Also included in this download is an 11-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the nine 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.”
