The story of how the first world war began is complex and confusing. This presentation explains the factors that contributed to the start of WWI.
Topics covered include:
♦ Brief overview of the Franco-Prussian War
♦ The growing Russian Empire
♦ Emerging nationalism
♦ European imperialism
♦ The alliance system of Europe
♦ The Balkans
♦ Assassination of the Archduke
♦ The July Crisis
♦ The Start of the War
♦ The Ottoman Empire's reasons for joining
♦ U.S. neutrality and eventual entry into the War

It includes handouts for note taking as well as reflection questions.

There are three links within the presentation to Youtube. The videos total ~20 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.

This lesson takes me approximately two 60 minute periods to complete.
