If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
Power point #1 – World War I – The United States Joins the Fight contains 14 editable slides.
When World War I erupted in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson pledged neutrality for the United States, a position that the vast majority of Americans favored. Britain was one of America’s closest trading partners, and tension soon arose between the United States and Germany over the Germany’s attempted quarantine of Britain.
Several U.S. ships traveling to Britain were damaged or sunk by German mines, and in February 1915 Germany announced unrestricted submarine warfare in the waters around Britain. In mid-March, 4 American ships were sunk by German submarines. A direct challenge, Wilson went before a special session of Congress on April 2 declaring that the submarine campaign was a "war against all nations" and asked that war be declared with Germany.
This request was granted on April 6 and subsequent declarations of war were issued against Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, and Bulgaria. With that, America entered World War I.
