We started the Europe/Russia unit today! We organized our classroom into a communist society with each student in a separate committee with distinct classroom responsibilities. (If you were absent when we divided into committees, please check your period's PowerPoint below to find out what you do).
We also began a discussion on the history of Russia and how the Industrial Revolution led to the people accepting communism.
Remember to read the "Life Under Stalin" article below for next class! You DO NOT have to answer the questions on the back of the article.
