Model Essay on the Reign of Alexander III (Tsar Alexander III Roleplay Unit)

This resource is part of a new roleplay unit for teaching this topic at IB / A-Level. The teacher takes on the role of the Tsar, and the students as his ministers. Over several hours the ‘reformers’ and the ‘reactionaries’ debate the issues whilst the teacher uses the 30-slide presentation to guide the debate and inform students about what has actually been decided. It’s a great way to maintain student interest and engagement throughout a unit which might otherwise be rather abstractly academic.
