This activity is designed to give students a basic run-down of how the dictators of the 1930s rose to power. When I used this with my 8th graders, I broke students into groups of three and had each student read about a different dictator. Then we came back together as a class. I drew the graph on the board and called on students to answer. If satisfied with their answers, I asked the students to come up and put their answers on the board, so all students could get all the notes.
