Students read an account of Hitler's 1923 attempted coup in Munich in the Beer Hall Putsch and answer 10 questions and complete 3 creative tasks. They include creating a pair of advertisements, a "what if" write up, and social media posts. All prompts and instructions for each task are included. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate!
Sample questions include:
--Summarize why Hitler thought the time was right to overthrow the Weimar Republic.
--Drawing from prior knowledge and the text, explain the epiphany Hitler had in prison and how it changed the future of the world.
--What is a "motley crew"?
--How did Hitler get the public back on his side?
--What is it about Hitler and other leaders like him, or the condition of a country and its people, that allows them to amass a following and take control of a country? Are there leaders like this in the world in modern times (give or take from 1980)? You may need to infer from prior knowledge and current events.
