Mr. Harms has designed a number of PowerPoint and Keynote presentations to help students understand history. Designed by a teacher for teachers, this PowerPoint focuses on "Totalitarianism: Stalinist Russia". This presentation is designed to give students an overview of the development of Russia or the Soviet Union under Josef Stalin. Students will be shown maps, animations and descriptions of some of the major events in the development of Stalin's totalitarian regime. The presentation is totally customizable, allowing you to add your own pictures, graphics and animations to take what we've done even farther. It comes with presentation notes to help you discuss the subject and engage them in the development of humans. At less than $4.00, it will save you time and lay the foundation for presentations that help students understand and remember. The Topics include: Stalin, Russia, Soviet Union, Totalitarianism, Authoritarian Government, The Great Purge, Command Economy, Five Year Plans, Collective Farms and Kulaks.

I started HistorySimulation.com in October of 2011 and teachers around the country have found the programs an invaluable addition to their curriculum. The programs are easy to use and can be customized by teachers. They are also designed to be used year after year. Although most simulations are designed for high school students, we now offer programs for elementary school students. During the simulation, students are constantly using their critical thinking skills to develop strategies and carry on tough negotiations with the other leaders. Because students become so interested, they seem to learn a lot more. Games for kids can create an interest level that is hard to duplicate in the ordinary Social Studies setting. Over the years, I kept adding different aspects to the simulation and eventually created something that really got the kids excited and passionate about history. I also found that students were much more engaged after doing the simulation as we went over what really happened and compared it to our simulation. The discussions and questions flowed like never before. Teaching students that are interested is so much more fun!
