This lesson analyzes the forces that led to World War II with focuses on events in Asia and how the Western democracies' policy of appeasement helped bring on war. The section on the Spanish Civil War has a number of very colorful and artistic propaganda posters I bought at a flea market in Madrid some years ago.
In the PowerPoint, the color flowchart develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. There are also extensive photos with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes with lots of details and interesting trivia.
