PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Visually-Stunning 327 slide PowerPoint with Rock-Solid United States History!

I teach AP United States History but my PowerPoints are used by all the U.S. History teachers in my school. It’s perfect for whatever level you teach.

This 327 slide PowerPoint carefully explores Manifest Destiny, slavery in the South and the causes of the Civil War. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion.

Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. Manifest Destiny
II. The Mexican-American War
III. “King Cotton” and Antebellum Southern Society
IV. Slavery
V. The Abolitionist Movement
VI. The South’s Defense of Slavery
VII. The Compromise of 1850
VIII. The Kansas-Nebraska Act
IX. The Dred Scott Case
X. The Election of 1860 and Birth of the Republican Party
XI. The South Secedes

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.
