This power point presentation identifies and defines 7 key concepts for students studying history, government, anthropology, and sociology. The 7 terms support a conceptual approach to the social studies and features the list of 7 terms and a slide for each with a definition and key points. Teachers can incorporate the slides into their own presentation. Most importantly, the presentation is designed to encourage and support the study of the social sciences conceptually and not as an exercise in memorization. The presentation provides a foundation for teachers new to this approach and contributes to teachers experienced in this methodology.
