"Finding the resources is the easy part. It's the thinking that is hard!"
The biographical information is easy. We have great resources for biographical info.
- Biography Resource Center (database)
- Encyclopedia of World Biography (ebook and Gale Virtual Reference Library)
- History in Context
That's where you might want to consult:
- Historical Newspapers
- Roper iPoll (starts at 1930, so cutting it a little close on some of these)
That's where you will find the more granular details that will make this fun and creative. You should knock off the basics quickly, then focus on finding news articles from back in the day that help you get to know your dictator - try to get inside his head. What made him tick? It's easy to explain about Hitler's life, but we want to find out what drove Hiltler's life. Do you see the difference?
Here is a tutorial for using iPoll. It is soooo cool!
Let's play with the inquiry process a bit. Please post your responses to the question below on this Padlet board.
