Political Divisions

History Presentation

Engaging History Presentations

Mr. Harms has designed a number of Power Point and Keynote presentations with Social Studies Concepts and Critical Thinking Questions to help students understand history. Designed by a teacher for teachers, this Power Point focuses on Causes of the Civil War: "Political Divisions".


These history presentations are designed to give students an overview of the political conflicts in the United States in the late 1850's. Students will be shown maps, animations and descriptions of some of the major events dealing with the period just before the start of the Civil War.


The presentation is totally customizable, allowing you to add your own pictures, graphics and animations to take what we've done even farther. 


What is your time worth? Our basic pricing system for History Presentations is 10 cents per slide.  Some title slides may only take 30 seconds to create, but complex slides with animations and coordinated builds for complicated topics may take 30 minutes or more.  It's not unusual for a presentation to take between 3 and 7 hours of work.  What could you do with 6 or 7 free hours?

Topics Included

Topics include: Stephen Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, The Republican Party, The Whigs, The Democrats, Election of 1856, Dred Scott Decision, Lincoln Douglas Debates, Missouri Compromise, Popular Sovereignty and Slavery.

Included in The Presentation Package:

1.    Keynote Presentation
