Mankind The Story of All of US 12 Episodes:
ANCIENT GREECE BUNDLE
-1. MAP OF GREECE-
I always start with a map of Greece as it is a great way to set the stage. It is always easier to do this in class as it is the best way to answer all questions and to make sure the students are doing what they are supposed to be doing. The students will be drawing a map and labeling it on their own.
-2. BRONZE, DARK, AND GOLDEN AGES:
I start with this as it provides a great way to introduce the three stages of progression the Greeks go through in their society. I will try and focus on the Golden Ages with Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle as well as Alexander the Great's importance and significance. This will be in PPT and KEYNOTE format for adjustments.
-3. ARISTOTLE AND PLATO ASSIGNMENT-
I will spend some time having the students read this in class. This is a wonderful assignment that provides a lot of good discussions. I am sorry I do not have the key with it as it is at my school.
-3B- PLATO REPUBLIC SHORT VERSION-
I have included this as a shorter version of the above. It only deals with the Republic with 4 questions. I do not have the key at this time which I apologize for.
-4. SOCRATES, ARISTOTLE, PLATO QUOTES-
With these you can select or delete the ones you do not want to provide the kind of discussion that you want. I pass these out and have the students write whether they agree or disagree with the quote and a short explanation of why they agree or disagree. The best part about this is the discussion afterward.
-5. DIRECT AND IN DIRECT DEMOCRACY-
This lesson shows some actual pictures of Greece as well as a concept attainment about direct and in direct democracy. I use very practical examples so the students really get this in a little simulation. In a direct democracy, I have the students vote directly as we discuss all the issues. In an indirect democracy I have the students select 2 students to represent them, like student congress, and then they get to write notes to the elected as they try and influence the outcome of the issues. To take it one step further the teacher may create a ballot and have the students vote on the measures with the elected officials having the ability to reject or veto the measures. Have fun with it as it is a light fun day.
6. PARAGRAPH ASSIGNMENT:
This assignment will be for the brave as I do not have the keys for this at the time. I start with explaining how to write a basic paragraph. This takes about 20 minutes to do this and is a great way to set the stage for expectations regarding the year. I then turn the students loose on investigating some of the differing characteristics of each of the three different cities within Greece: Athens, Sparta, and Corinth. Each city is completely different as they have different cultures but do embrace some things that are the same. I do not have the key for the chart but will post one up once I get back to school in September. You can email me as well and I will send it over. I have the students use the links provided on the paragraph rubric to fill in their chart. The chart will then be used to write 2 separate paragraphs to get the students used to writing compare and contrast paragraphs.
7. ALEXANDER THE GREAT:
While the students are working on this assignment I typically show this. I do not have the students take notes but do give a 5 question quiz after the video. The link is below.
8. FALL OF GREECE:
Just a great little short reading on the Fall of Greece. Easy to use and read for all levels.
ANCIENT ROME BUNDLE
1. THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF ROME-
This is an 18 slide intro to the contributions of Rome. Please make sure to go over the organization of the government first. It is in PDF format and covers all the major contributions of Rome. Government, Roads, Law, Toast, Calendar, baths, spas, concrete, aqueducts and teeth. This is my introduction to teaching about Rome.
2. RELIGIONS OF ROME-
This is a fantastic way to go over the religions of Rome. I love teaching my students about the different roles Jews and Christians played within the Roman Society. I also, love explaining to them why Christianity is where it is within the world today as I take 2 days to explain it. Surprisingly many students do not know much about Christianity today and this is a great way to talk about it with the students.
3. BEN HUR CLIP-
This is the famous chariot race scene as Charlton Heston is riding the white horse and the Roman is riding the Black horse. Judah ultimately wins in one of the most famous races in film. Someone actually dies in the filming of this as it is pretty darn exciting as my students enjoy watching this every year.
4. MANKIND THE STORY OF ALL OF US-
This episode deals with the death of Jesus and the Rise of Christianity within Rome. It also deals with Rome as an Empire and some of the great contributions of this civilization. China is brought into the show as the silk road is talked about and discussed as China is important to the expansion of trade and sharing of ideas. The last segment is about Paul and how Christianity rose and became an important part of the empire as they built Constantine. I think this episode fits well within the context of World History either 10th grade or 8th. I use it in my 10th-grade classroom and it is perfect.
5. ENGINEERING AN EMPIRE VIDEO-
The Rise and Fall of the Roman Emperors. I show this in class as it takes 2 days. I feel it gives the students a feel for how the emperors operate and the kinds of contributions that they accomplished in their empires. I have the students write down each empire and the contribution of each empire and why that would be important for us today.
Engineering an Empire PART I AND PART II
6. FALL OF ROME-
I go through the 8 reasons why Rome fell in class and have the students compare it with that of where we are at regarding the US. It is an interesting idea as the students have not usually considered what could take down the United States of America.
7. DEMOCRATIC DEVELOPMENTS-
This is a slide show I put together to explain how feudalism was a response to the fall of Rome. This also discusses the role of William the Conqueror, Common Law and Henry II, quarrels within the church and the Magna Carta, and a limited monarchy.
This is more of an overview than an in depth study of the above topics. The book we use only dedicates one section to the discussion of all of these topics. I thought this is a good way to connect them with that of Rome.
8. THE RISE OF FEUDALISM-
This is a great lesson that covers many of the time periods my book skips over.
Here is the list of topics covered: Charlemagne, Vikings, Feudalism, Knights, Crusades, Magna Carta, Black Death Castles.
I have the students take notes on a blank sheet of paper which they fold into 8 squares. Each square must have a picture in it with 5 bullet notes. Sometimes I have the students take a quiz on what they wrote but other times we just go over the highlights in the class of what they were reading about.
9. SPECIAL BONUS:
I will include my test and answer key and review sheet.
THE ENLIGHTENMENT BUNDLE
1. ENLIGHTENMENT PRESENTATION-
My introduction PPT will be in Keynote and PPT format, so that you may adjust anything that you like. I have my students take Cornell notes during the presentation which is more of a slideshow/discussion. It is 28 slides long and takes 2 days to complete. I really feel this is the best way to look at the Enlightenment thinkers in chronological order focusing on the key contribution of each thinker. The PPT goes over the following Enlightenment thinkers: Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Baron de Montesquieu, Denis Diderot, Voltaire, Mary Wollstonecraft, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Simon Bolivar.
2. ENLIGHTENMENT DIAGRAM:
This is a basic introduction diagram to the Enlightenment. It will take a look at a few of the key players and essential questions of the Enlightenment. (10 MINUTES AT MOST)
3. ENLIGHTENMENT MUSIC-
This is a fantastic lesson that focuses on the music/art of the Enlightenment. I have included the sheet that I have students fill in while I go over this as well. There are 10 slides with this KEYNOTE although I did not include the videos or the music as I ran out of space but I did include links below for the videos I used. Youtube has tons of music and resources, but I purchased the music CD's at the dollar store. (takes about a day to teach and is really fun for the students)
Gregorian Chant from slideshow:
Renaissance Dance from slideshow:
I also have a Napoleon Dynamite clip in here as well.
On the last slide of this presentation I show the famous evolution of dance video from YouTube.com.
The link will be below.
4. ENLIGHTENMENT SOCIAL CONTRACT ASSIGNMENT-
This is a fun lesson where the students get to create their own rules to help create a bill of rights or social contract to show the importance of trying to work out a set of rules that everyone agrees on. This lesson takes approximately one class and is assuming that the teaching portion of this has already been done.
5. ENLIGHTENMENT FAIR PROJECT-
We have done this project as individual teachers and as a World History department. Each group of 3-4 students picks one of the philosophers and does full research on their Enlightenment thinker. It works best before the Enlightenment fair to have the students present their findings. I give EC if the students dress up and really get into their thinker. I also give the students 2 days in class to work on this project and really make sure they are either doing research or working on their presentation board. I have included the rubric as well as the project sheet.
6. ENLIGHTENMENT SHORT MOVIE-
This is 7 minutes long but does a good job of summarizing the Enlightenment. Feel free to use it in the PPT or just show it separately.
7. ENLIGHTENMENT VOCAB-
I do not have the key but will put this up once I get back to school in the fall. I am including it as a bonus as it goes over 9 words that I think are important to the Enlightenment. The best way to do this you have the students say the word with you and write down the definition which is to be said in class out loud by the teacher.
8. ENLIGHTENMENT /AMERICAN REVOLUTION JOHN GREEN EPISODE-
This is a stand a lone episode focusing more on the American Revolution than anything else.
9. TCI READING:
I am not going to include this but will be recommending this for the reading section on the Enlightenment. It is absolutely fantastic, I cannot include it in this but you may be able to google it or if you have TCI stuff at your school go and find it. If you email me I can send a link to TCI as I do not want to get copyright issues for selling anything that is not mine.
10. ENLIGHTENMENT THINKER CHART-
This chart can be given as a stand alone for the students to use their books or can be gone over with the teacher. I do not have the key for it with me as I will have to upload it later as it is at my school computer. It is a great resource for the majority of the thinkers from the Enlightenment.
11. ENLIGHTENMENT NEWSLETTER PROJECT-
This is a short project for the individuals or groups of 2 to do. It can be done on a computer or on a blank sheet of paper.
This project is simple and probably could use some expansion but the idea is sound. Would love to hear any feedback or other ideas to make this project even better.
12. ENLIGHTENMENT TEST/QUIZZES-
This is my test and review sheet.
13. ENLIGHTENMENT CLOSE READING ASSIGNMENT-
I am including the PPT/Keynote with this as I think it makes it really clear for the students doing the work. The close reading freebie below goes really well with this assignment.
Government sheet as a gift for downloading this BUNDLE!
The French Revolution
FRENCH REVOLUTION BUNDLE
-1.STORMING THE BASTILLE ACTIVITY-
I typically start the French Revolution off with a short concept attainment on Revolution and Constitution. I also go over the different states and how they fit into the kingdom of the time.
After my short presentation, I read them the story of the storming of the Bastille with all the students heads down and lights out.
I HAVE INCLUDED 2 PDF VERSIONS OF THIS! THEY ARE BOTH THE SAME THING BUT ONE IS A LITTLE LONGER THAN THE OTHER.
-2.FRENCH REVOLUTION 58 SLIDE POWERPOINT-
I have broken the French Revolution into 4 stages to make it easy for students to remember what is happening. The stages are the Moderate, Reign of Terror, Reactionary and Napoleonic Stage. This presentation will cover everything in the Revolution and can be done individually or as a class.
-3.TENNIS COURT VIDEO -
This is just a cool video of Roger Federer and Andre Agassi playing tennis in Dubai. It really has nothing to do with the French Revolution other than it is just fun. It may help the students remember the Tennis Court Oath, but that is about it.
-4.VALUES LINE CONSERVATIVES VS. LIBERALS-
This is a Values line lesson that I love, love! It takes the students through the difference between a conservative and liberal and really shows them where they stand on some current real issues.
-5.FRENCH REVOLUTION WRITING ASSIGNMENT-
This is a great little writing assignment that reinforces everything that was gone over in the French Revolution PPT. This is a 4 paragraph essay that gives the students some freedom but also keeps them very much focused on what they are supposed to be focused on.
I would recommend using my FREE paragraph sheet download in addition to this assignment. I like to have students fill out at least 2 of these and then the other 2 paragraphs are on their own. ( I have included this in the download to save time)
-6. DECLARATION OF RIGHTS OF MAN COMPARE/CONTRAST
- This is a lesson I did with my students in groups of 2 after I had finished explaining the Moderate Stage of the French Revolution. I had the students look at the documents and break down the differences in the documents. After they finished each person in the class had to compare or contrast the 2 documents in a paragraph. I have attached my paragraph sheet as a bonus for buying this lesson. I have included the key and the documents in this lesson. It worked out for a one day lesson and I gave the students 2 days to write the paragraph.
The Industrial Revolution
INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION BUNDLE
DAY 1: AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION-
11 slide presentation to intro the Industrial Revolution. I have also included a short video to help visualize life before the AR.
DAY 2: INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION PART I:
21 slides that focus on the inventions of the IR.I have included a PDF sheet to take notes on and a reading HW assignment for outside or in class.
Here is the links to the videos I used:
Life Before the Industrial Revolution
Wool and how it become cloth
Alexander Graham Bell video
Thomas Edison video
Guglielmo Marconi video
Henry Bessemer video
Wright Brothers video
DAY 3 AND 4: INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION PART II:
38 slides that goes through everything else regarding the social impact of the IR..
This is a fun simulation that is your basic factory simulation so that students can understand factory life. I got this for free from UCI.
Industrial Revolution reading to be done at home or in class and can be gone over. It really discusses some of the working conditions of the IR.
Industrial Revolution DBQ. Not much to this other than research and writing. Feel free to take a look at some of my DBQ resources.
Industrial Revolution worksheet to be done in class. This is very traditional and is fill in the blank and define vocab.
This is a great project that allows students to look at whether the IR was good or bad.
Industrial Revolution tests and review sheet.
Types of governments sheet. This can be used as HW or in class.
-1. The Africa PPT
is a great way to introduce students to the concept of Imperialism. I give them the definition and then have them watch a short clip of Iron Man pointing out what is and what is not imperialism in the movie clip. The presentation is an introduction in the general sense to who was involved, what were they after and how it was going. The PPT is 14 slides and can be completed in one period.
I have included some other short video clips that would work really well on Day 1 or any other day you need a 5 minute summary of what is being studied.
-3. China and Japan PPT
is a short 13 slides and is more of a comparison and contrast of how Japan and China dealt with Imperialism in the 1800's. I do not have any video for this one as it is quick and to the point.
-4. India PPT
is a 12 slide account of what was going on in India in the 1800's. I have included a clip of Indiana Jones to show the differences between the West and India. The students love it as it really shows how weaponry is king from this time period forward.
-5. Ghost in the Darkness Movie:
I really enjoy showing this movie in class as the students are just riveted by what goes on in Africa at the time. It shows the struggles of Imperialism and the difficulties of working with other groups of people from all over the world.
The movie is not a free download as it cost 2.99 on Amazon to rent and 9.99 to own.
-6. Worksheet for in class work on Imperialism.
This is a one-day Imperialism worksheet that I do not have the key for. I am not sure where it is as I have looked everywhere. I am so sorry.
-7. Charles Darwin Reading:
This is a short 10-15 minute reading on Charles Darwin and his contribution to the time period. It can be done as a closed reading highlighting things that are important or as a stand alone in class reading.
-8. The White Man's Burden-
This is a classic and disturbing view on how the White man, at the time, viewed other races and how they fit together into society. It is kinda long but I feel it is good for the students to read and understand the mindset at the time.
I have included the test I use with the unit as well with the answer key. Feel free to use it or ditch it.
I will be also including the FINAL and the FINAL review sheet.
-10. BONUS II
DBQ READING AND WRITING BUNDLE
World History Second Semester GIANT BUNDLE 75 Lessons WWI WWII COLD WAR
Here is what you will be getting in this great bundle that I have created.
There are over 75 lessons included in this Giant Bundle of stuff. I will be mailing a 4 GB thumb drive to your address PARCEL POST upon payment. This is over 20 years of teaching experience!
WORLD WAR I BUNDLE
-1.DISCUSSION QUESTIONS- WWI discussion questions that are easy to use in class and create a nice discussion either in groups of 2 or individually to do and discuss as a class.
-2.40 SLIDE POWERPOINT- Causes PowerPoint about what is going on year by year with WWI. This PPT is large but covers all angles of the war. It comes with a sheet to keep the students accountable. There is 40 slides with a slide for the video to be inserted at the end.
- 3.WWI SHORT VIDEO -A fantastic short video that I believe will change students perspectives on WWI as they see the realities of what it meant to be a soldier in WWI. This short film has subtitles and really brings home the message about WWI. ( please insert at the end of the PPT)
- 4.WOODROW WILSON 14 PT- assignment to do in class following the PPT.
This is a one-day assignment that students can do by themselves or in groups. It is one of the standards so it is very important to spend some time on this critical document that will lead to many later developments in the world.
-5.DAS BOAT AND GALLIPOLLI VIDEO WRITING ASSIGNMENT IN CLASS-
This is a fantastic assignment that covers submarine warfare and the trenches of WWI. It is all about historical empathy and writing. I will be including the assignment sheet and the links to both of the videos.
The first assignment deals with submarine warfare. I know Das Boat is from WWII but it does not matter as it truly shows what it is like to live and die in a submarine. It shows how you are stuck and at the will of those above you. I love showing this clip, even though it is from 1981.
The second assignment deals with the trenches and Mel Gibson who is a trench runner. He has to try and save his battalion from going over the top and committing suicide. It is really sad and makes the students realize just how pointless the loss of life was.
46"-1'05" give or take a few seconds.
Last 10 minutes of the movie.
-6.WAR HORSE- Wanted to create something that would allow me to keep the students accountable for the movie, but also allow them to watch the movie.
Includes: This 15 question worksheet will give you some accountability for the movie while still making the students think about some of the essential questions from the movie.
-7.WORKSHEET- This is an old fashioned worksheet with fill in the black answers about WWI. I have also included the key and as it is a Word document you can adjust everything to make t work for you!
-8.WRITING ASSIGNMENT- This is a 5 paragraph essay that will use the paragraph format that I have posted in my store. Each paragraph is 11 sentences and has a very specific format. This assignment will compare/contrast and discuss the consequences of each of these major events.
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION BUNDLE
DAY 1 AND 2: I start with a slide show of the Romanov Dynasty. This is a great way to go over the last couple of Kings in Russia. It is 17 slides and really sets the stage for the transition from the old way to the Communist state that will follow.
DAY 4 AND 5 AND 6: I typically show the HBO special Rasputin. It is fantastic as it shows the in's and outs of the Romanov Dynasty and how Rasputin himself was instrumental in influencing the Tsar. This is the 1996 version as I am not sure where to find it.
DAY 7 AND 8: Lenin and Stalin are next as I start a 28 slide PPT that goes through the entire shift from a King to Communism. This explains the in's and out's of why everything goes the way it does. I really feel this is the best way to teach this important part of history. I have included 2 videos as I could only fit one of them on the download, the other is on youtube and can be downloaded and inserted into the PPT.
Gulag video many lives many Days:
DAY 9: I like to pass out the Russian Revolution reading in class with questions that I like to go over in class.
DAY 10: To finish off the unit we do a Russian Revolution paper in my class. It is a great way for the students to show me what they have learned throughout the unit and to show mastery of the subject.
DAY 11: I have as a bonus included the gift assignment which is a perfect way to end the unit. Each student will be required to use all vocab in the chapter and represent it visually or textually using the front and back of a blank sheet of paper. Please see the sample I have included.
I would probably have students do either DAY 10 or DAY 11 but not both. It would be just too much work.
The Rise of Totalitarian dictators sets the stage for the rest of the year, in my opinion. I really enjoy teaching this, not for the content, but because the students know very little about this very interesting period of time.
In this BUNDLE I will be including the following items:
Teaching of the Depression and the Rise of Fascism and what it is. here is a fill in the document that goes with the teaching. I have made the teaching both in PPT/ and Keynote.
As a bonus you could do a concept attainment with fascism to make sure the students got it by watching a short clip of Pink Floyd the Wall to see how many things fit as true fascist activities.
PINK FLOYD THE WALL
Day 2 and 3:
Teaching the rise of the 3 dictators. Mussolini, Stalin, and Hitler. There is a fill in the document that goes with the teaching. I have made the teaching both in PPT/ and Keynote.
I use the 4th day to launch the writing assignment. The writing assignment asks the students to compare 2 of the dictators and contrast 2 of the dictators. I use my
PARAGRAPH SHEET FREE
or if you really want all my reading and writing stuff:
READING AND WRITING BUNDLE
This makes writing so much easier when you have a proper template to have them write to.
After I have taught it and launched my writing assignment we will watch 2 videos on class. I have the students take notes on both of them to make sure they are guided with their watching and that they are not just zoning out.
I have the students watch this in its entirety as it does the best job of showing and explaining Mussolini's career and life. This is the 2nd clip from youtube as the first one got taken down so I will include that as I downloaded it before it got removed from youtube.
FASCISM IN COLOR
Day 6 and 7:
Another great video, The Roots of Evil, that allows the students to have more information for their 2 paragraphs. I have the students take notes on this one as well.
THE ROOTS OF EVIL
If for some reason you are feeling that the students need some more work to do and that they are not getting it after doing all of the above I have made an additional HW assignment that is 4 pages in length and does a really good job of making sure they know who is who before going into WWII.
The last bonus that I will include is a bunch of fun facts about Hitler and his regime. I will also include a reading Stalin vs. Hitler.
WWII and HOLOCAUST BUNDLE
This is a good 3-4 weeks of teaching with the kids that is very structured with lots of info to talk about and discuss with the students. Here is what I have included:
Pre-test with key. I typically give this in the beginning of the unit to introduce some of the main characters and countries of the war.
2. Map Assignment:
World War II map assignment. You will need to print the blank maps on the back of the assignment and 2 additional giving you a total of 3 maps so the students may use their books to see how things change in Europe during WWII. A good way just to get a sense of where everything is.
62 slide PDF PowerPoint of 4-5 days of direct or flipped classroom instruction. I have my students take notes in Cornell style during this presentation. This presentation is very visual and is a wonderful way to walk the students through the war. I have them take Cornell notes while the presentation is going.
These are the key terms from the unit to go over in class and say together. I always do this with the class as it makes a bigger impression and it makes sure that they know certain terms as they come up.
5. World War II from Space:
video notes with Key. This will take 2 complete days to finish. I have included the masters to photocopy and a key.
6. Battle Sheet:
that allows students to work independently on looking up all the battles start and finishes and who won. This is a worksheet for in or outside of class.
7. Grading the War:
This is a great way for students to converse about they think went well and what they think did not go well. I like to get students in groups of 3 for this activity.
8. WWII Interactive PPT:
This is a PPT map that shows the transition of all the military as the Axis Powers and Allied Powers try and destroy each other.
9. WWII reading:
This is a wonderful HW assignment that allows students to get a good overview of the war in a short summary type format. There are questions that go with this as well or you can close read it in class.
10. WWII Test:
I have included a review sheet and key with this 40 question multiple choice test.
11. WWII Video Project:
There are so many great videos out there I like my students to watch at least 1-2 of them in groups and discuss. This is the one way I can see that getting done as to not take 1-2 weeks to show it in class. I have included links to all the videos as well.
12. WWII Worksheet:
This is for those traditionalists who like worksheets and fill in the blank lessons. I figured I should include it in case people want to have this for a sub.
13. Elie Wiesel Night:
this includes a reading guide and a test for the book.
Elie Wiesel Night
14.The Boy with the Striped Pajamas video guide:
Boy With the Striped Pajamas
15. Schindler's List video guide:
Schindler's List Video Guide
I am going to give you three videos to help teach WWII. They can be inserted into the PPT or shown separately.
COLD WAR BUNDLE
This is a Cold War Bundle that will include 5 things.
1. Pre-test with Key
2. This is a 23 slide presentation that will walk you through all the major events of the COLD WAR. It is very visual with very little text.
3. We didn't Start the fire with lyrics and the link to The Russians. This is a great way to look at the Cold War as many of the students have not heard or seen these songs before.
Sting The Russians with Lyrics
4. As a follow up to the PPT and the songs I like to show the show Death of Nation as it really shows how Russia has evolved over the last couple of decades. I have included a video guide for this as well.
Death of Nation Russia
5. Cold War test is also included.
ECONOMICS FULL SEMESTER
The first version is more traditional with PPT's and vocabulary and tests. The second version is a more common core approach. I suggest a combination of the 2.
For most chapters, I have the work for each unit that needs to be done. I also have tests and quizzes, lessons that I think are important and any videos that I may have used in the PPT that is included.
