Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid History!
This 209 slide PowerPoint, appropriately, is the most visually stunning presentation I have built. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion. This PowerPoint could be used in its entirety or broken up into smaller presentations focused on the Italian Renaissance, Leonardo Da Vinci, the Northern Renaissance, among others.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. The Evolution of the Italian Renaissance
II. Intellectual Hallmarks of the Renaissance
III. Art and Artists of the Italian Renaissance
IV. Renaissance Society
V. The Renaissance in the North
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.
