II. Martin Luther and the Birth of the Protestant Reformation
III. The Growth of the Protestant Reformation
IV. The Catholic Reformation and the Counter Reformation
V. The Wars of Religion
VI. The Social Impact of the Protestant Reformation
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.
