What are the types of AOK's?
Primary & Secondary Sources
Primary sources may be accurate as it's recorded during the time of the event. However, it may be bias depending on the position of the writer.

Secondary sources may be limited as it's recorded after the historic event. However, it may provide a fair and effective judgement as the writer is neutral.
Different perspective of history


-Personal / Family experiences
-As Winston Churchill said "History is written by the victors"

Learning from History

British monarchs
Great Depression
Before: laisser faire
Now: Not that
Russian Revolution
- Joseph Stalin and Vladimir Lenin both used propaganda to increase their power
-Russian Revolution took place on the 8th of March and finished on the 8th of November
Lenin used propaganda effectively
- His slogan was “Peace, Land, Bread”
- Poster literally translates to “Lenin. October. Power to soviets. Peace to the nations. Land to peasants. Factories to workers.”
- This was not even close to the things that he did
- He led his party, the Bolsheviks, to power through similar posters to this
- improvements in technology have helped improve source accuracy
- Computers, internet, telephones, cameras etc.
- Definitely an improvement from books, which could be edited through the use of propaganda
- Helps answer questions:
- Who produced this source?
- When was it produced?
- Was the creator of the source an eyewitness?
- Where was the source produced?
- Social Networks like Facebook almost record things that you have done

Chairman Mao
Viewed differently according to nationality.
sociol-economical status in society

Knowledge is created through different perspectives and shared knowledge is build up by the movement back and forth of ideas.
- The soviets were run by a communist government at this point in time
- Poster literally translates to: “For the People’s Happiness!”
- This poster is definitely an example of propaganda as he was closer to a dictator (never publicly admitted it)
- By using propaganda he was able to convince the people of the Soviet Union that they were having a fair election
- History is connected to Religious and indigenous knowledge systems
- Books like the Bible are viewed by many as an historical artifact
- However many dispute the validity of these books
