This lesson plan allows students to become more aware of how modern history is sometimes influenced by ideology. This is particularly common for Soviet history. Students will learn about several traditional schools of thought and to identify them in the writing of professional historians. As students become more at ease with this kind of bias, they will move on to a final Task which is a public speaking component. There are instructions for successful public speaking and an Evaluation Form for the teacher/judge. Students will also be supplied with organizers. The objective is for students to address their audience using one of the ideologies they have studied. Several speaking styles are described and some role play is also available. 23 pp.
