Foundation for the History of Totalitarianism

The Holodomor lesson plan following the assembly

The lesson plan is designed for students who have already attended the school assembly presentation. See here for the lesson plan for students who have not attended it.

The lesson pack has full guidance for the teacher, powerpoint slide and materials for two activities. Teachers may use all or part of the lesson or edit it as they please. Some of the original sources are very powerful texts.

The lesson is aimed at students in the sixth form but it is accessible for students in Year 10 and above.

The lesson pack download consists of:

    1. The lesson plan with guidance to the teacher.
    2. Slides
    3. Activity 1 – Timeline of events
    4. Activity 1 – Event cards
    5. Activity 2 – Primary sources
    6. Activity 2 – Table for student notes on sources

The lesson plan can be downloaded free of charge here.
