Product Description
This worksheet is designed to introduce students to two primary sources regarding criticisms on capitalism and the main goals of the Communist Party. It features two primary sources - "The Pyramid of Capitalism" and "How to be a Good Communist" - and directs students through discussion questions and charts to analyze each source individually, then synthesize them together to create a deeper perspective on the reasoning behind the Communist movement. It's a great resource that combines reading comprehension and analysis with primary source research, and it fits with any unit in U.S. History, World History, or U.S. Government that deals with the difference between capitalism and communism.

This two-page worksheet can take up to an entire class period to complete and discuss, and is designed for either individual or group work in a high school social studies classroom, grades 9-12.
