The student should take a test in class at the completion of the unit, checking for knowledge of the basic terms and locations, and a comprehension of the main ideas of the unit (Nationalism, Road to War, etc)
A final assessment of student comprehension should also be given in the form of a take home final exam
The student will choose an ethnic group in conflict with another, or with their imperial masters, from the era of the First World War. They will explain why this group has a grievance with the other group. This explanation will include: the appropriate developments in the country or region leading up to the conflict, the characteristics of the particular ethnic group, and how ethnic identity has played a role in this conflict. (See guidelines above) Students will be required to give examples and evidence.
Students can also be given the option of completing this assignment in the form a creative writing project. The student can being writing a (lengthy) letter from the point of view of a Turk to an old Armenian friend justifying removal, or from a British official to his Arab neighbor explaining why British rule is best. This would reemphasize the personal aspects to these historical events even further. Also, this provides a good opportunity for interdisciplinary teacher.
