"This was one of my favorite units to teach and share with colleagues."
THE FIRST SEMESTER OF WORLD HISTORY
THE WHOLE YEAR OF WORLD HISTORY
The Armenia Genocide is one of those events that gets very little attention in the World History books. I have decided to make a weeks worth of curriculum so that one may go as deep or as shallow as one would want.
-1. POWERPOINT/VIDEO/NOTE TAKING GUIDE:
I have included a short 10 slide PPT that has a 60 minute video embedded into it. I have included the 60 minute video as I think it is powerful in trying to figure out if this event was even true. I have also included a sheet that will be filled in with the PPT while you are going through the information. ( I am including 2 versions of the PPT)
-2. POSITION DOCUMENT:
Position document that go with the primary source documents. I have included 14 primary source documents for the students to really make a decision on whether this even was true or not. I would not want the students to read all of them, maybe just 4-5 of them as they begin to build their position.
Once the research has been done a 3 paragraph essay is a wonderful way to wrap this up.
Paragraph #1: one paragraph focusing on the Armenian's
Paragraph #2: one paragraph focusing on the Turks
Paragraph #3: one paragraph would be the opinion of the writer.
With a conclusion and an intro the total amount of writing would be 5 paragraphs.
-4. GOOGLE PRESENTATION ASSIGNMENT:
I have also included a google presentation assignment with primary source documents. It is a lesson where the kids get to create slides that show who is responsible for the genocide. They have to use the primary source links to create a position with evidence.
