presentation is wonderful for introducing students to the theories of WHY
government is necessary and HOW
government should work.
After explaining the two extremes of government power (absolute versus mob rule), the presentation guides students through the different theories of Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Charles de Montesquieu, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. I have included brief sections of The Prince
for students to consider.
The presentation is complete with slide notes, highlighted titles, vocabulary words, and important ideas, and includes custom animation. The presentation is saved using a 97-2003 format.
Finally, the file also includes a graphic organizer
in which students will identify the main points associated with each philosophe and answer questions based on the discussion.
You might also consider a bundled unit
I have uploaded. The unit includes this PowerPoint
and graphic organizer
on each of the philosophers discussed (with the exception of Jean-Jacques Rousseau), and two types of assessments
. You can download the bundle here
