If you are interested inTHE SECOND SEMESTER OF WORLD HISTORY
this includes everything and more.
The Rise of Totalitarian dictators sets the stage for the rest of the year, in my opinion. I really enjoy teaching this, not for the content, but because the students know very little about this very interesting period of time.
- 1. Chapter Preview Sheets:
I do these with every chapter to allow the students to at least see what we are going to be studying before the unit begins. I have included 2 different versions of the Chapter Preview sheet.
- 2: Great Depression PPT
Begin by teaching the Great Depression/1920's and the Rise of Fascism and what it is so the students are really clear. I have also included a student fill in the document that goes with the teaching. I have made the teaching both in PPT/ and Keynote so that it is accessible for all.
As a bonus you could do a concept attainment with fascism to make sure the students got it by watching a short clip of Pink Floyd the Wall to see how many things fit as true fascist activities. The problem with the clip is that it is from a rated R movie so be careful not to go beyond the district's policies of movies.
PINK FLOYD THE WALL
- 2A. The rise of the 3 Dictators
Teaching the rise of the 3 dictators. Mussolini, Stalin, and Hitler. There is a fill in the document that goes with the teaching. I have made the teaching both in PPT/ and Keynote.
- 3. Writing Assignment
I use the 4th day to launch the writing assignment. The writing assignment asks the students to compare 2 of the dictators and contrast 2 of the dictators. I use my paragraph sheet that I have included below.
- 4. Reading and Writing BUNDLE:
This is a great BUNDLE that will be extremely helpful in the writing process for the RISE of TOTALITARIANISM.
READING AND WRITING BUNDLE
- 5. Totalitarian HW Assignment
If for some reason you are feeling that the students need some more work to do and that they are not getting it after doing all of the above I have made an additional HW assignment that is 4 pages in length and does a really good job of making sure they know who is who before going into WWII.
This makes writing so much easier when you have a proper template to have them write to.
After I have taught it and launched my writing assignment we will watch 2 videos on class. I have the students take notes on both of them to make sure they are guided with their watching and that they are not just zoning out.
- VIDEO #1: Fascism in Color video
I have the students watch this in its entirety as it does the best job of showing and explaining Mussolini's career and life. If you need the second clip please email me as I do have it and can send it to you.
FASCISM IN COLOR
FASCISM IN COLOR
-VIDEO #2. Roots of Evil Video
Another great video, The Roots of Evil, that allows the students to have more information for their 2 paragraphs. I have the students take notes on this one as well.
THE ROOTS OF EVIL
THE ROOTS OF EVIL
The last bonus that I will include is a bunch of fun facts about Hitler and his regime. I will also include a reading on Stalin vs. Hitler.
This is just a fun video
- 6. Crash Course Videos
A great guide to go with the Crash Course episode. It is a 6-page handout that really does help the students stay accountable while watching it.
Crash Course 38
Here is what is included in this 6 page download:
1. Note Taking Guide for Students:
This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.
2. Summary of the Video:
A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.
3. Teacher Notes from the:
My 1 page of notes.
4. Vocabulary Section:
I have chosen 3 words that would be good to have the students look up. I also have them write each of the words in a sentence.
5. Quiz for students / with answers:
There is a 10 question quiz with answers from the episode. It can be taken in class or taken home. I think in class would be better.
6. Blank Template for student created quiz:
I decided to add this to every Crash Course guide as it works really well with students.
**Also, I highly recommend having the students watch this on .5 speed. If you click the wheel on the bottom of the youtube video you can adjust the speed.
7. Additional Resources –
I have included some of my favorite lessons from Stanford University as well as some other goodies.
- 8. Gift Assignment
This is a great way for students to completely understand the decade.
- 9. Test and Quizzes
All the tests and quizzes that go with this unit are included.
10. Fascism in Color –
This is the one segment that is not on youtube so I figured I would include it as it is that good. Unfortunately, I could not fit it into the download so please email me for the link on google drive.
11. Paragraph Prompts –
These some good ideas to have your students write about during the course of the year. They are apart of my free download that is in my store.
