Today we will focus on preparing for next class' Summative Socratic Discussions that will focus on comparing/contrasting political revolutions. To prepare, please take the following steps:

HW: take notes from at least 1 source on 2nd revolution
- Be sure to ask some of the same questions about this revolution as you did for the French Revolution--your questions should guide your research and your notes should be based on evidence and information that helps you answer your questions.
- Keep your notes efficiently and effectively organized based your supporting questions!
- QCI is minimal this time-- use QCI just to capture some of your insights and "ah-ha" moments you may be having, and/or any connections you are making to other revolutions or connections to power and change (historical or modern-day connections).
Task #1: Develop your supporting questions for research
List at least 6 Supporting Questions that YOU Plan to Use to Guide Your Research
these are a set of questions that you will intentionally use to help guide your research in answering the research question(s).
- Bank of some possible questions to guide your research on revolutions
- (you can pick questions from this -or- develop your own questions)
- See Bloom’s Taxonomy sentence starters slides
Task #2: Take Notes on French Revolution
(be sure to take notes based on your supporting questions)
Begin with general background notes on when it happened and the causes... then move into taking notes based on the supporting questions you developed to guide your research.
It will also be helpful for you to analyze the stages of the French Revolution (see the tables on pages 708-709).
HW: Keep researching and taking notes on the French Revolution
Helpful Resources for Research on the French Revolution:
- French Revolution - Stewart's Presentation Slides
- French Revolution (History.com)
- French Revolution - ABC-CLIO
- Chapter 23: French Revolution - Online links to resources (Classzone textbook website -- choose "International" for school zone)
- “Age of Napoleon” (History of Our World Textbook Chapter PDF)

There are several factors that may lead to a revolution--rarely is there only 1 cause. Often there are underlying factors.
Consider the story of Alphonse the Camel -- was this not true for poor Alphonse's death? Revolutions are similar...it is not always caused by the final straw.
Let's take a look at a modern-day revolution to see how it began and what underlying factors may have been present that contributed to the start:
- Mohamed Bouazizi: The Spark that Ignited the Arab Spring (the globalist)
- The Arab Spring: A Year of Revolution (NPR)
Evo Morales and Bolivia (the Guardian, 18 Nov. 2019)

Read The Human Story, Chapter 13. Take notes on some of the revolutionary changes it addresses (hint: there are several revolutions mentioned in this chapter).
Use the guiding questions to decide what is worth taking notes on:
- WHAT IS A REVOLUTION?
- WHAT ARE SOME CAUSES OF REVOLUTIONS?
- WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF REVOLUTIONS IN HISTORY?
- WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES (INTENDED & UNINTENDED) OF REVOLUTIONS?
