The unit that has just been taught to us is about revolutions. We kicked off this unit by researching the french revolution. After a few days of research, we were given specific roles of people who influenced and had an impact on the outcome of the revolution. When it was time to role play, we were given a series of questions and ideas, and as our given person we answered the question like we thought they would've felt.
We then studied the Arab Springs. After studying these two revolutions, we were assigned to make a digital story. You could've picked any topic. It's supposed to be a guide to a successful revolution. On our own, we came up with reasons as to why we thought a revolution didn't work and how it was similar to the other revolutions that failed. My digital story is about what path a revolution you're trying to start should take; violent vs. non-violent.
