Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid History!
This 525 slide PowerPoint brings together just about everything you'd want out of a presentation covering 1920 to 1945. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion. Given the length of this PowerPoint and the number of subjects it covers, it could be used in its entirety or broken up into smaller PowerPoints.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. The Age of Anxiety (the impact of WWI on art, literature, philosophy)
II. The Search for Peace and Political Stability
III. The Rise of Dictatorships
IV. Lenin, Stalin and Communist Russia (1921-1939)
V. Mussolini and Fascist Italy
VI. Hitler and Nazi Germany
VII. The Second World War
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.
