This 12-slide power point presentation provides students with an overview of the “Age of the Enlightenment” in World History. The power point begins with a background of what the Enlightenment was and then covers topics such as the salons and the spreading of Enlightenment thought. Specific slides are devoted to Enlightenment thinkers such as Hobbes, Locke, Voltaire, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith. Be sure to look for the "Age of Enlightenment Guided Notes Outline" available on TpT for a skeleton outline that students can complete as you lecture.
Additionally, combine this lesson with the "Age of Revolutions Guided Notes" and the French Revolution Comic Strip Project available on TpT to complete a mini-unit on this period in World History.
