Russian Revolution Project

  1. 1. Russian Revolution Jig Saw Project For your next project, you are to choose one of the given topics, or another that is requested if you find something of interest pertaining to the Russian Revolution that has been approved by Professor Koogler, and do a presentation of your topic for the class. You will have a variety of formats to choose from: PowerPoint, Video, or Speech. If you have any other ideas on format, feel free to converse your topic with me. This will be assessed under Criterion C: Skills. Also, you should note that a jig saw project is where the content is divided up amongst the student body. It is the responsibility of the students to research and teach your topic to the class. NOTES ARE REQUIRED DURING PRESENTATIONS as several questions for the exam will be pulled from the presentations. You will work in groups of two and presentations must last a minimum of 10 minutes. You will structure your lesson by introducing the topic, proceeding with your presentation, and then wrap it up with the key points that you think most important for the class to remember. We will have 3-4 days of in class time to research and put together your lesson, followed up 1-2 days of presentations. A question and answer session will be a part of your presentation, so be prepared and anticipate what questions the audience, or I, may ask. I will be judging this more harshly than the poster project, so attention to detail must be observed. We will then have a review day and then the test. Godspeed and Good Luck  Topics: 1. Lenin 2. Stalin 3. Trotsky 4. The Russian Exit from World War I 5. Rasputin 6. The Russian Civil War 7. The Romanovs 8. War Communism 9. Differences between Lenin and Stalin 10. Command Economy 11. Secret Police 12. Communist Propaganda
  2. 2. Rubric: 1. Is the presentation free of grammatical errors? 2. Did the speaker(s) clearly communicate the information? Were they engaging or did they appear lackadaisical and inept? You must garner the attention of your audience. If they are not paying attention to you, it’s because they find you boring. It’s not their fault, it’s yours. Adapt and evolve to your audience’s demands. 3. Was use of the PowerPoint, Video, etc, appropriate, or did it wonder off? Did you incorporate pictures or video embedded to stress the major points? Were these appropriate or did they simply serve to fill up time? 4. Is the presentation informative? Did you cover all the major points associated with your topic? Basically, did you do your job and research, refine, present, and communicate? 5. Did you summarize what you want your peers to know at the end of your lesson? It is very important that you reiterate what you want your audience to learn.
