PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am an award winning (see profile), ex-HS Global Studies teacher, now teaching at the University of Rhode Island. Note: Since I joined TpT in May 2015, ten teachers have purchased this product.

After using inadequate excerpts on Communism found in US History or World History textbooks, I decided to write my own description. Instead of the one page descriptions found in textbooks, I use seven pages to help the student understand this very controversial topic. This topic is so important to understand if they are to understand the post 1917 world. I cover the following topics in my review of Communism:
1) A CLASSLESS SOCIETY
2) PRIVATE OR PUBLIC OWNERSHIP
3) COMPETITION VS COOPERATION
4) WHO MAKES THE DECISIONS REGARDING WHAT TO PRODUCE AND HOW TO DISTRIBUTE?
5) WHY WOULD ANYONE WORK HARD IN A COMMUNIST SYSTEM?
6) HOW WOULD COMMUNISTS COME TO POWER? WOULD THE CAPITALISTS ALLOW COMMUNISM TO TAKE OVER?
7) WHAT WOULD MARX’S COMMUNIST UTOPIA LOOK LIKE?
8) WHAT MIGHT MARX HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE FAILURE OF COMMUNISM IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY?
9) MARXISM AND RELIGION
10) COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM

Included in the seven pages are numerous questions which lend themselves to in-depth class discussion, and simulation.
