THIS IS A SAMPLE OF MY POWERPOINTS FOR MY AP WORLD HISTORY CLASS. EACH PPT IS READY TO PULL UP AND TEACH. THEY HAVE QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION OR WRITING, MAPS, IMAGES AND NOTES FOR DISCUSSION.
This PPT is a great opening for beginning the discussion of the different empires of the world right before the Mongols.
This PPT examines where the world is as a whole and offers students opportunities for Think-Pair-Shares with maps (questions provided in PPT). The students are forced to examine the world and the different empires in each area and build an idea of global themes across space.
Students have to complete a timeline for the world at the time by placing events in the right order and this will help the students contextualize how the globe looked at different periods. This can help the cause/effect relationship and how events can spur other events in the globe.
Students also have discussion questions which can be used as independent classwork, or pair work or discussion.
