Read the two quotes that describe the effects that imperialism had on Africa. Answer all three questions on paper I give you.
Write 5-7 sentences for each question.
Nationalism is the belief that your own country is better than all others.
It is important not to confuse nationalism with patriotism. Patriotism is a healthy pride in your country that brings about feelings of loyalty and a desire to help other citizens. Nationalism is the belief that your country is superior, without question or doubt. Loyalty to the state is stressed rather than the community.
In some cases, nationalism can inspire people to break free of a foreign oppressor, as in the American Revolution.
Nationalism can also lead a country to cut itself off from the rest of the world. Sometimes nationalism makes people not want to work with other countries (cooperate) to solve shared problems.
Your group will begin the gallery walk at the number of the exhibit that corresponds with your group number.
You have two minutes at each station. Each station will have a different speaker from your group who will ask the same question: “How is nationalism portrayed in this exhibit? ”
Discuss and answer the question.
Move to the next station in number order. Rotate speakers. Everyone is required to act as speaker.
Create a short (!) speech (a sentence or two or three) that depicts
nationalism according to what you observed in the exhibits. Do not
mention the name of a particular country but choose words that
demonstrate the essence of nationalism. Choose a “leader” from your
group to “speak”.
You might begin with:
“MY FELLOW CITIZENS, ………………..”
