Revolutions: MYP Year 3 I & S

6 May

Students in my MYP Year 3 Individuals and Societies (Grade 8 History/Social Studies) are learning about revolutions, revolts, protests, rebellions and resistance. This is a new unit for our class and we are focusing on key terms. The statement of inquiry (SOI) is:

At different times and locations, societies can experience revolutionary change, due to a variety of causes and often with long-lasting consequences.

Key Questions we will address:

Factual: What is a revolution? What are the causes of a revolution? Review case studies from history.

Conceptual: What are the different types of revolution? What factors determine the significance of an event?

Debatable: Do revolutions always lead to progress?

Last week, students had to do the following task:


Demonstrate your understanding of the term revolution by drawing a sketch or cartoon to represent it, using the information you have learned in our lessons and your own ideas. Think about how you could bring the key concept of change into the drawing.
