World History: “Commercials” about NATIONALISM


Using the iPad for your backdrop with at least 5 HISTORICAL pictures (in iMovie), create a 30-60 second “commercial” that will attempt to “SELL” one aspect of Chapter 10 to your audience.  The audience will be the class!  Think about what makes commercials visually appealing and attention-grabbing.  The iMovie will play in the background while you read the commercial to us.

Topics are below, and all information is found in CHAPTER 10.

Nationalism Prior to WWI: Chapter 10

Recruitment/Complaint Commercial!

Your task is to create a commercial with at least 4 PIECES OF INFORMATION ON IT that are either in SUPPORT OF or AGAINST a leader in your country.  Countries and leaders you may choose are:

Germany:  Otto Von Bismarck

Italy:  Count Cavour and/or Guiseppe Garibaldi

Austria-Hungary:  Francis Joseph or the DUAL MONARCHY in general

Russia:  LOTS to choose from!  Alexander II, Alexander III, Nicholas II

Pick a country to focus on, and then decide if you are FOR or AGAINST this leader and what he is trying to do.  Then, make a “commercial” with at least 4 reasons why you are FOR or AGAINST this leader!  Be specific!  Use at least 5 historical images, and make it something that will catch people’s attention.  Remember, in many cases, the secret police might be after you for this, so you want to make it very convincing to recruit as MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to join your cause!

Graded on:  Neatness, accuracy of 4 pieces of information, and spelling/grammar

Total points:  15
