This is a series of primary source readings on nationalism for a World History course at the high school or university survey course level. The three primary source readings include 7-13 questions at the end of each reading that combine reading comprehension, links to current government issues and Document-Based-Questions (marked with a "►"). Contents include:
1. Italy's Risorgimento: Guiseppi Girabaldi and Pope Pius IX
2. German Unification: Otto von Bismark's "Thoughts and Reminiscences"
3. The Russo-Japanese War: Japanese declaration of war, Russian response
4. Unit vocabulary and concept list with a practice test worksheet
The readings can be used for in-class lessons, sub-plans or homework assignments. They're ideal for a World History AP course, though I use them for my standard-level students as well.
