This 18-slide Power Point presentation comes with a skeleton-outline for easy student note taking. The presentation covers the beginning of the French Revolution in great detail. It begins by giving some of the positives of French society prior to the revolution. Then, it looks at the problems of the "Old Regime" and the three estates. It also looks at the discontent in France because of the financial crisis and the weak leadership of King Louis XVI. The presentation then goes on to cover key events including the Meeting of the Estates-General, the Tennis Court Oath, the Storming of the Bastille, and the Great Fear.
