The second half of the unit was spent on studying modern day revolutions, and what has changed compared to historic ones. The main thing we that we found was interesting is the change in media. We have been tracking the revolution going on in the Ukraine today, and it seems to be fitting perfectly with our unit. We closed out the unit with the main question: what makes a revolution successful? After long discussions, we each made these projects as a guide of how to actually have a successful revolution.
In world history we've been studying historic and modern revolutions. This unit covered facts about revolutions that have already happened, tracking revolutions that are in place now, and also questioning what makes a revolution successful. We started with the French-Haitian Revolution. We studied facts for a few weeks, and ended with a mock trial from the king's execution. That was the end of our historic revolution study.
