This is the sixteenth in a series of PowerPoints I have done for a World History Course. It covers The Protestant Reformation in Europe from the Printing Press to the Thirty Years War. Topics include Gutenberg, Erasmus, Indulgences and Church Corruption, Martin Luther, John Calvin, The Church of England, etc. I make my PowerPoints light on words, because I elaborate on them myself. I have tried to make them as aesthetically pleasing as possible, so students will enjoy the presentation as much as they can. NOTE: The glowing words are the really important things on a slide that I definitely want my students to remember! I usually break the PowerPoints up when I use them, into multiple days. (Ex. I'll teach a couple of slides then do an activity. I'll pick back up the next day.) You should feel free to use these as template. Edit them to your satisfaction, but I feel these are great tools and springboards! Strickland Presentations
NOTE: I use a quote in this presentation from Francis Bacon about the Printing Press and I have two of the inventions as ? because I like to let my students guess. You can probably look the quote up by copying and pasting my words but the answers are gunpowder weapons and the nautical compass!
