Revolutions Project Video

In this 10th grade world history project, students in Hayward, California conduct research to determine if various revolutions in history were “effective” or not. Working in teams, students research and debate the goals and outcomes of a particular revolution, then play the role of lawyers in a mock trial to present their case before an audience. Students also write individual argumentative essays.

Learning goals include causes and effects of revolutions in Haiti, Russia, Cuba, and France; argumentative writing using evidence-based claims; reading, speaking and listening skills.
