Students read FDR's address to Congress asking for a declaration of war after the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor during World War 2 (WW2, WWII) and answer 13 questions. The answers are included where appropriate. This would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--How did FDR explain to the public that the attack was pre-determined?
--Discuss what the implications were that FDR alluded to when he said [Americans] "well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.”
--What kind of victory does FDR predict Americans will have and why?
--Why does FDR emphasize the existence of hostilities? How will this presence of "grave danger" change American lives forever?
--How might Britain, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, and Japan each have reacted to this speech?
