Fantastic presentation on Colonial Society in British America! Works great for any American history class.

This a a great PowerPoint (or Google Slides) you can use to present to your class or give to them to study on their own. The design is professional and minimal (i.e. NO death by PowerPoint). The content is very detailed in the notes, so if you are busy, you can simply open the slides in front of the class and read the notes. Otherwise, you can make changes to the PPT, if you deem it necessary. This presentation can be used in Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides.

Content in PPT includes:

  • Detailed timeline (1607-1754)
  • Consumer Revolution
  • Mercantilism
  • Money in British America (e.g. Spanish Dollar, Wampum, etc.)
  • Slavery in the 1700s
  • Three types of colonial governments
  • Enlightenment
  • Zenger Trial
  • The Great Awakening
  • Seven Years War (French and Indian War)
  • Pontiac’s War
  • Proclamation of 1763
  • and more!

This presentation is about society in British America. It describes the development from small colonies to a more developed system as the British took more control over the colonies. It also emphasizes the road to the American Revolution ending with the Seven Years War. The Seven Years War brought the Proclamation of 1763 which angered the colonists because it restricted them from moving west. And, of course, war debt the British had to pay off which led to all those taxes (e.g. Sugar Act, Stamp Act, and more).

This PPT follows standard American history textbooks.
