I have recently completed teaching a unit on the Peoples Republic of China and wanted to post it. The complete unit was 10 lessons focused primarily on China under Mao. The unit was designed and taught to a 12th grade IB history class. The Unit was designed with the goal of preparing students for IB Paper 2 topics on single state regimes. There were a wide variety of activities including daily Mao quotes, student biographies, and several graphic organizers. This is the complete Unit plan, followed by lessons 1-3, (4-10 are in a following post).
