The students will recognize that there are many different causes that can lead to a revolution. The students will know the different causes of the French Revolution and the effects of that revolution. The students will explore what the French citizens desired to gain from the revolution. There should be an understanding the results of a revolution may or may not have an effect on the lives of citizens. Revolutions do not always equal immediate progress, which is mirrored in the aftermath of the French Revolution. The performance assessment design will give the students to start a revolution where they think a revolution would result in progress. The purpose of this assessment is to think critically about what should be valued in a leader, what rights people deserve to have, and to think about how revolutions begin and can eventually have a lasting impression.
