ATL Skill Research: Interpret and infer information, process data & present research

Describe China in 1911 before the fall of the Emperor Pu Yi

Begin by watching the opening scenes of the movie: China in Revolution.

In a group of 4 you will create a project nest to show what you have found out about China in 1911. You will organise your research around these headings.

  • Political System: Emperor and the Royal Family
  • Foreign influence in China: Which countries ruled which parts of China
  • Chinese society: Religion, customs and traditions
  • Chinese Economy: trade and industry

For each heading you must find out:   What, who, when, where and why.

Step 1:Each member of the group should research one heading. Decide who is going to do what.

Step 2: Using the ‘W’ questions above, write the questions that you will need to answer for the heading you are researching.

Step 3: Conduct some research using this template.

Step 4: Organise the research on your project board (you can add maps or pictures if you wish).

Step 5: Share your learning with your group using the strategy below.

You will have one lesson for research and one for presentation.
