This fantastic primary source worksheet includes an abbreviated version of a speech the great pilot Charles Lindbergh gave in 1939 about why the US should stay out of the soon-to-begin World War II.
In the speech he characterizes Europe as constantly squabbling and eloquently describes the reasons why people came to America. Of course, he was eventually proved wrong in history but this speech still resonates with students as an argument against war.
Following the one page reading, eight critical thinking questions test your students' comprehension. An answer key for this is included.
This is an excellent worksheet before beginning World War II or in a lesson on the rise of dictators during the 1930's. It also has worked well for me when we cover the Holocaust and why other nations did not respond sooner.
