The Forgotten Fight Against Fascism

The Forgotten Fight Against Fascism | History:  Alive in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Rod Powell's insight:
In 1945, world fascism was finally defeated. But for a crucial decade the democracies did not oppose and often emboldened the fascist advance into Manchuria and China, Ethiopia and Spain. But students today don’t learn this. Instead, texts present World War II as an inevitability and the Allies as anti-fascists and saviors of democracy. A fuller history of the failure of the United States to fight fascism at its outset—and even its multifaceted support of fascism—would help students rethink this supposed inevitability. Today’s students deserve more than a few textbook paragraphs describing the fight against fascism before 1939 while the governments of the United States, England, and France encouraged its aggressions.

European Borders Through History | National Geographic Education

European Borders Through History | National Geographic Education | History:  Alive in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Students compare maps of European borders at three points in history: after World War I, after World War II, and the 2011 European Union (EU) countries.

 

Students look for political borders that have changed and others that have remained the same, and compare those to what they know about cultural and physical geography in Europe and in their own state or local area.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, February 6, 8:20 AM

This falls under geography:

This is a lesson plan about the three european boarders in history. Political boarders also play a role in how the country's take their shape. Each country's shape, culture, and government can be altered after  a war. 

Megan and Hillary's curator insight, February 6, 9:30 AM

This article relates to geography in  europe because it talks about how students are comparing old maps to new maps to see if the political borders has changed.
