Learning Activities 1. Students will read text relevant to this standard as homework prior to class. Begin class with a Kahoot quiz about fascism and communism in Germany Italy and the Soviet Union.

I will be using Kahoot as a fun way to break up lecture into small bite size pieces. 2. quick timed activity: Have students make a simple origami. Some students will not have dests being forced to fold their origami in their lap. This activity is to facilitate discussion about having your rights removed and how the Russian people had their rights removed.

Why I chose this topic ● I chose this topic because although twentieth century history has never been a favorite time period of mine I always enjoyed learning about the dictators in Europe. ● It is important to understand the World Wars and this time period offers a unique view on both World War 1 and 2. We get to observe the horrible consequences WW1 had and we get to put together how those consequences lead to the rise of totalitarianism and the dictators of Europe in the twentieth century. The rise of totalitarianism lead eventually to WW2 and it is import to be able to recognize the events that lead to this tragic conflict and also recognize the circumstances that allowed dictators like Hitler and Lenin to take power.
