I created this PowerPoint slideshow to accompany my students reading the popular speech by David McCullough titled "Why History?". You can easily find the article online to accompany this PowerPoint.
I typically use this PowerPoint to lead a discussion on the main points from the article.
It is crucial for students to understand why history is important in order for them to care. This PowerPoint makes it easy for them to see why it's important and why I love history so much.
*This PowerPoint has great images and transitions!
