A SmartBoard notebook file that contains instructions for students to research a chosen battle from the Spanish Civil War and then write an "after action" report on the battle that details what technology was used and its importance in the battle's outcome. Links to websites are included. The second slide is a simple prompt asking students to assess the performance of the Republican and Nationalist armies in the Spanish Civil War. This can be used as a discussion prompt or as a prompt for a writing assignment, either in-class or take-home. The file is easily convertible to PDF format if you prefer to use it as a handout.
