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 70 slide PowerPoint carefully explores the basic beliefs and early history of Islam in the Post-Classical period (600 CE – 1450 CE). The PowerPoint includes class notes, high resolution photographs, political cartoons, artwork and maps, dozens of primary source excerpts, and questions for classroom discussion. This PowerPoint would be perfect for grades 6 through 12. If you like this free PowerPoint, please check out my World Religions PowerPoint and my entire World History series.
Topics covered in this PowerPoint include:
I. The Origins of Islam
II. Islamic Beliefs
III. The Muslim Split
IV. The Umayyad Dynasty
V. The Abbasid Dynasty
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.
