Lesson tips

  • Make your own Timeline
    Students put together their own timeline. They can use online tools such as  or for this or programs such as Prezi and PowerPoint. Prezi is automatically saved online and PowerPoint presentations can be shared via Slideshare.

  • Recognize propaganda material
    Students search for images which show the reality in another way. Do they recognize these as being propaganda? Ask them to describe the images and give their opinions about what they see.

  • Analyzing photographs: what can you see?
    Choose five photographs and show them to your students. Ask students to visit the Timeline and then analyze the five photos. What can they see? When were the photos taken?

    This can also be done the other way around. Students first describe the photos and then check out the Timeline to see if their ideas are correct.
