I teach World History/Global Studies in an exciting, intense way. My goal is to bring history alive to my students.
I put a great deal of effort into creating detailed, viewer-friendly, informative, and entertaining PowerPoint presentations. They are filled with vivid pictures, useful charts, maps, and graphs, and the text is easy on the eyes. The PowerPoints are coupled with Guided Notes sheets that are highly structured and organized.
When I create a new PowerPoint or revamp an existing one, I put myself in the students' place and say to myself: "Alright. If I were a student, what would I want to see?" I have gotten great results so far!
