Grade 9-10 literacy in social studies: Imperialism

This 6–8 week Common core-aligned global history unit has been designed as a series of in-­depth case studies in which students will explore the (both intended and unintended) motivations for and consequences of European imperialism in India, Kenya, the Congo, and Vietnam. Students demonstrate mastery of the content and their ability to cite specific textual evidence from their analysis of both primary and secondary sources by writing an informative/explanatory essay. Using a variety of primary and secondary sources from four case studies of European imperialism, students will write an essay in which they provide information on the motivations for and consequences of European imperialism, citing supporting evidence from the sources in their writing.
