Tick 'February Revolution - A Source Study' off your 'to do' list!
This teaching resource on the 100th anniversary of the February Revolution consists of a Source Study with primary and secondary sources.
The sources come from both key players of the revolution and from historians. As such students will have an opportunity to examine differing points of view or perspectives. A series of questions are posed to elicit higher order thinking. Finally, students are presented with three historians' perspectives on the February Revolution. This should give them an opportunity to address the concept of 'contestability' in history.
This resource can be used in two ways. Firstly, teachers can use it as an avenue for students to conduct a mini investigation into the February Revolution. Secondly, it can be used to consolidate student knowledge and understanding of the Revolution whilst providing students with some practice in addressing source-based questions.
