Part of Stalin’s 5 Year Plan was a rapid and forced process by which private farms were seized by the government and transformed into large kolkhoz or collective farms. After watching the PowerPoint presentation and reading the docs, post on your impressions of Collectivization and its impact. What was it like to be one of those who participated in the collectivization? Who are the kulaks, and what’s the Soviet government’s view of them? How do the purges fit into all this? Please return and respond to your classmates’ posts.
A good or excellent posting consists of demonstrating knowledge of all the week’s readings, if applicable, and how the materials relate to or explain the question at hand. A key point to remember is that you are responding not only to me but to your classmates as well, raising your own questions concerning the material, giving us more than only four or five sentences per post
For an “A” (9-10 pts. weekly): a discussion grade of “A” will require you to have all your postings completed before the deadlines (which are noted on the Calendar), demonstrate excellent knowledge and understanding of the readings, responses (be tactful and nice) and questions for your classmates, and at least two quality postings per week spread out over the entire discussion period. At least one posting each week should be in response to your classmates’ postings. Your views, opinions, thoughts, must be thoughtful and supported with appropriate information from the readings or videos. If you express an opinion try to support it with material from our readings and videos and indicate the page number, if appropriate, where you found the support.
