Russia’s revolution has had a profound and lasting impact on the course of history. The study of Lenin’s effort to create a new socialist society allows students to understand the birth of an ideological system that would eventually compete directly with the United States for world primacy.
Using primary source documents, readings, and simulations, students explore the historical opportunities that allowed Lenin and the Bolsheviks to assume power. In a role-play set in Petrograd in spring 1917, students recreate the furious debate Russians had over their future.
