The Warsaw Uprising

The Warsaw Uprising Worksheet

The Warsaw Uprising of 1944 was a significant historical event that has been well-documented through various sources. This lesson plan will provide an overview of the insurrection through primary and secondary sources, focusing on developing students’ critical thinking and source analysis skills.

The lesson will begin with students being introduced to various written sources that provide different perspectives on the event.

Teachers may divide the sources between the class or have students work individually or with a partner. As they analyse the sources, students will be asked to consider the author’s perspective, any biases or limitations in the source, and the overall reliability of the information presented.

After analysing the sources, students will discuss their findings and insights in a class discussion. They will also be asked to consider the broader historical context and the impact of the Warsaw Uprising on the war and Polish society.

A final activity in this lesson will be a written exercise, where students will be asked to write a mini-essay from their perspective on a proposed question. They will have to use the sources, their own knowledge and source analysis skills to make their essay as accurate as possible.

This lesson will not only provide students with a deeper understanding of the Warsaw Uprising and its significance in modern history but also help them develop critical thinking and source analysis skills. These skills will help students to evaluate historical sources better and make more informed judgments about the past.
