Project Guidelines

Research the Russian Revolution using materials provided in class. Pay particular
attention to the questions and vocabulary words for each time period, as you’ll
be asked to include them in your story (and yes, they’ll be on the test).

Maintain an accurate timeline and independent notes to assist you and your
group. You’ll be required to bring these each day that you’re working on your
slides.

Use the dates provide to create 4 more journal entries that are written from the
perspective of your character (Alexander or Sergei) . Use a combination of facts
and fiction, along with at least 4 vocabulary words per time period, to create an
informative and entertaining narrative of these historical events.

Add each journal entry (up to 400 words each) to the “presentation notes” of
your PowerPoint slide. In each entry, underline the vocabulary words and all of
the parts that are based on researched facts.

Gather 2-3 images per slide to support and illustrate your story. Brief captions (up
to 15 words per slide) are required.
Tips for Success

Research your revolution thoroughly. Generate a short list of factual details
that you want to include on each slide before starting your narrative.

Don’t try to include everything. Rather, select your events carefully and focus
on the main causes, events, and outcomes of your revolution.

Create a vivid character by including details about his/her name, age, family
life, occupation, surroundings, and relationships. Again, you may want to
brainstorm a short list of these details before starting each slide.

Put your character into the action (or at least witness it). Start your entries
with the most important/most recent event and then provide background on
how these events came about.

Give your character emotions and opinions. Present these events from his/her
perspective and tell how you have been personally affected.

Coordinate your story with that of your teammates. You’re working with the
same events, but should respond to them differently. Be willing to share your
notes.

Remember that you are writing Historical Fiction. You will be assessed on your
ability to 1). Select and use accurate historical facts, and 2). Create a
compelling narrative with strong use of 6 Traits writing skills.
