This teaching resource is designed to tap into the creative side of students and encourages them to use technology to present their understanding on the extent to which the Bolsheviks changed Russian society. Students examine individual and group experiences, and the role propaganda and terror played in the period up to 1924.
A number of primary sources from the Bolsheviks form the basis of this investigation and students work collaboratively to look into the impact of the laws and decrees that were issued. It is envisaged that this challenging, yet creative task will help students gain an understanding of the far reaching consequences of Bolshevik reform prior to the Stalin period. It will set the scene for the historical debate on whether Stalinism was a product of Leninism.
