Synopsis: Over the course of one month, students explore the life, times, and legacy of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey in 1923. They assess his actions and develop the ability to evaluate the impact and leadership styles of important historical figures. The project begins with an exploration of the idea of “leadership”, and focuses students on five characteristics that are common to most effective leaders. Groups of students then engage in an in-depth research project about Ataturk, and finish the unit by creating a videotaped interview of Ataturk (who is played by one of the students) using historically accurate scripts and costumes.
