The following is a class activity in which students are placed into groups and assigned the task to create a "Newscast" to inform the audience about the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the subsequent Civil War in Russia which follows a few years later. For this assignment students are asked to create and develop a 3-5 min "Newscast" which they will present to the class. They are asked to role play the part in which they are assigned from that sides point of view.
I use my Russian Revolution of 1917 and Russian Civil War PPT first, prior to assigning this activity. The PPT allows for students to attain the main ideas and concepts behind the topic. This assignment allows students to creatively present what they have learned about the above topics.
This activity comes with two items:
1. Student Assignment Sheet = explains in detail the assignment and all parts of the students assigned task
2. Rubric = for you as a teacher to grade each groups presentation.
Please check my store for the PPT which I use prior to this assignment. They pair well!!
