Multiple choice and true/false problems presented as editable worksheets and in Examview files. Plus an editable research project page & teacher information is also included to help students get the most from the PBS Video The Armenian Genocide
Why Study the Armenian Genocide
World War One included human rights abuses. One of the most notable examples is the Turkish government's actions against those of Armenian ancestry in their realm. Estimates of the number killed range between 1 and 2 million. This was the first genocide of the 20th century and set the stage for the horrors to come later.
About these Armenian Genocide Worksheets
You will get more than 60 questions, divided into two files.
The first has questions related to circumstances in the Ottoman empire that led to the genocide, as well as questions about the carrying-out of the genocide. The second has questions about world opinion regarding the genocide, Turkish denials, and what happened to the perpetrators of the genocide.
Both files are provided as editable RTF files, openable by most word processing programs, and also as Examview Test Banks so that if you already have Examview or CPS in your classroom, you won't have to type them in!
The two files contain 67 questions in total.
44 are True/False and 23 are Multiple Choice.
In addition, you will get a research project page about the persecution of Armenian intellectuals -- often the first step in a genocide!
This worksheet pack and research project will work with any textbook and can serve as a springboard for discussions about the genocide. You can be sure you cover all the major things students should know if you use these questions.
Using these Armenian Genocide Worksheet Questions with the PBS Documentary: The Armenian Genocide
Additionally, the questions are perfect to use after viewing the PBS documentary, "The Armenian Genocide." Questions were originally generated from the content of this video. The two files correspond to specific parts of the video: Part 1 covers from the start of the video to 26:00 in, Part 2 covers from 26:00 to the end.
I must stress that you can use these questions whether you have access to the video or not. They are very appropriate for teaching a la carte, so to speak, and to provide a framework for discussing the Armenian Genocide.
However, for information on the video that coordinates with these questions, check your PBS local listings for a showing of "The Armenian Genocide" or go to:

No thorough study of WWI is complete without taking a close look at human rights violations, such as the ones that took place in the Ottoman Empire during the war!
