A quick word about my teaching style so that you know what you are getting into. I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because of short supply. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook to be prepared for any tests or quizzes that they received. The power points that I created are quite extensive and include guided notes and video that go along with them. The students do not write down every word from the presentation and can focus on listening and learning the material from the lecture. Additional items that I have posted can be used for notebook check assignments which I usually have whenever I get to the end of a unit.
This bundle, which was created for a World History or World History honors class, includes the following:
- A 113 slide (131 mb) presentation that goes over the pre-revolutionary France, the end of the French monarchy, and the rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte I have included some video that is embedded in the presentation.
- four of guided notes that go along with the presentation. Each day of notes has questions at the end which I use as a notebook check assignment at the end of the unit. The notes are broken up as follows:
Day 1 - Pre-Revolutionary France
- The three estates and economic troubles
Day 2 - The End of the Old Regime
- Tennis court oath, Storming the Bastille, and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens.
Day 3 - The End of the French Monarchy
- "Let them eat cake," The Constitution of 1791, and the execution of the King and Queen.
Day 4 - The Napoleonic Wars
- Napoleonic Code, Invasion of Russia, Battle of Waterloo
In addition to the notes, you will receive these other assignments that can be used for in class activities or homework assignments:
-Bell ringers that can be given at the start of class. I devote the first 10-15 minutes of class to these.
- French Revolution/Napoleon research questions- I give this as a homework assignment before the unit. Students should be able to find the answers in their textbooks, or they can use internet resources.
- French Revolution History Channel video questions - you can track down the video from 2005 on dvd or I included a link where it is posted on YouTube.
- Quiz - 5 multiple choice questions, 5 fill-in-the-blank, 5 true/false, and a short essay (key included)
