Product Description
Imagine Hitler's playlist, Stalin's NETFLIX queue, or Mussolini's Match.com profile.
This is a creative assignment that prompts kids to think differently about world leaders.
A unique perspective enhances their understanding!


This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of 20th Century European dictators; however, it can be used with any characters or figures from literature or history...even current "characters" or other public figures in the news. The directions for the activity are as follows:

Imagine that your dictator exists in our society.

Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.

Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 150-225 words).

You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your dictator’s traits as we’ve discussed them in class.

You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the history and dictator.---

I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background.

They must then choose options under categories that include:

--Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube),

--social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com),

--shopping on Amazon,

--legitimate news, and

--self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).

Students are required to discuss why their dictator would have accessed or posted various items.

The kids really love this project and I get awesome results.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
