The IBDP History Topic Option 16: The Soviet Union and Post-Soviet Russia (1924–2000) focuses on exploring the critical socio-political transformations in the Soviet Union and its aftermath, offering students an in-depth understanding of the historical developments in this region. The lesson plans for this unit are designed to prepare students for the Paper 3 IBDP History examination and are typically presented through PowerPoint presentations and worksheets.

Topics covered include the Stalinist era, the Great Patriotic War, the Cold War, Perestroika, and the transition to a post-Soviet Russia. Each lesson plan provides an overview of the topic, supported by relevant historical facts, key events, people, and dates.
