"Wow", is how I feel that I need to start with the explanation of this PowerPoint. It took me forever to research each of these battles and I'm very proud of this PowerPoint. It is at a higher level than I usually would do for middle school and can easily be used for high school even in an AP classroom by using the enriched version.
There are two ability levels of this PowerPoint. There is an enriched version that goes into many details of the battles. The basic version still has a lot of detail as well but it has been simplified as much as possible. There are links to primary documents, songs and video clips. The graphics are beautiful as well.
The content includes the following items:
Causes of the War of 1812
Constitution "Old Ironsides" v. Guerriere
Hartford Convention 1814
The end of the war (Treaty of Ghent)
Effects of the War of 1812
There is a differentiated instruction lesson plan that goes with this PowerPoint but it is sold separately. The note sheets that are included in the lesson plan make the PowerPoint work great for a middle school classroom. The following sections are included in the War of 1812 differentiated instruction lesson plan. I do not recommend the differentiated instruction lesson plan for grades higher than 9.
