This assignment requires students to put on their critical thinking caps and really dive into the world of history. I use this assignment as introduction into World War.
This template asks students to consider several situations and asks them various questions such as...
1. Should you always support an ally?
2. What reasons for going to war might justify the death and destruction that inevitably result?
3. Do you agree with President Wilson's timing in entering WWI?
4. Have you ever been in a situation when you had to support an ally or friend even when you knew it wasn't the right thing to do?
I hope you enjoy this assignment in your classroom as much as I do. It really sparks creativity and allows students to see the beginning of World War I from a different perspective.
