Activity: Lesson 71  / Napoleon: The Legacy and the Legend

 

This activity is set up for you to evaluate the fame of Napoleon Bonaparte.  You'll be categorizing major acts and policies of Napoleon Bonaparte, indicating whether you judge them to be failures or achievements.  You'll examine opposing evaluations of Napoleon by two of his contemporaries and consider other historical assessments of him in order to gain an appreciation for the variety of interests and inclinations that color an historical interpretation.

 

Mr. Rosenberg will divide you into groups of two.  You will be given a topic, such as The Napoleonic Code, the 1812 Invasion of Russia, or Waterloo.  You’ll have to dig in a bit a do some good research from the Internet.  It can include documentary videos.  And YES, in this case Wikipedia articles are fine (they won’t always be).  Explain your reasons for your choices below.  You will get today and tomorrow to work on this in class.

 

You will expected to do a four to six minute presentation along with at least five accompanying slides to go along with it.
