This package includes everything needed to teach a one day unit on the European Age of Absolutism that will help students master the Virginia SOL WHII.6b. The package includes a teacher constructed narrative that directly correlates to the SOL (alternative source as opposed to textbook, notes, etc.). The package also includes a vocabulary activity including guided and independent practice, a thinking map activity (included in PPT and w/ a key), a PPT presentation with vocabulary and visuals, an exit ticket, and a quiz covering WHII.6a and WHII.6b. This is a quick, easy way to cover WHII.6b in one 90 minute period or two 45 minute periods. Likewise, the 6ab Quiz is a good way to conduct regular formative assessments throughout WHII.6, which is a larger unit.
