February Revolution: Changes in Russia 1905 - 1917

February Revolution: Changes in Russia 1905 - 1917

The aim of this exercise is to engage learners in thinking about what changed in Russia over the early years of the 20th century. By not making specific reference to the First World War, the task enables them to identify things that have changed significantly in relatively short period of time without being distracted by the war or led to believe that it was solely to blame. Factors such as the war, the 1905 revolution and famines can then be discussed as trigger points. In this way the learners should see that there are changes and some significant examples of continuity that lead to a situation where the February Revolution was a possibility. The task can be used as a longer exercise if each point is discussed and the classes conclusions are shared and debated. However, it is is intended to be used as a shorter activity for pairs lasting 10-15 minutes in total. Delivery in that way presumes a level of prior knowledge. To use as a longer activity, or should you wish to use the task as an introductory exercise, see our accompanying pupil note sheets on the causes of the February 1917 Revolution. Want images to accompany this task? See our Russian Revolution photo gallery on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/schoolshistory/
