Visually-Stunning PowerPoint with Rock-Solid World History!
I teach AP World History but my PowerPoints are used by all the World History teachers in my school. It’s perfect for whatever level you teach.
This 150 slide PowerPoint carefully explores the Age of Exploration. The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, and maps. This PowerPoint would be perfect for grades 6 through 12.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. Catalysts of Maritime Trade
II. The Voyages of Zheng He
III. The Voyages of the Portuguese
IV. The Voyages of Columbus
V. The Spanish in the Americas
VI. The Competition for North America
VII. The Columbian Exchange
VIII. The Atlantic Economy
IX. New World Labor Systems and the Slave Trade
X. Continuities and Changes in the Global Trade Network
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.
