PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Two PowerPoint files containing fourteen presentations for a World History unit titled “The Great War.”

The first PowerPoint file, “The Great War,” is 172 slides in length. The second, “The Lost Generation,” is 28 slides in length. In total there are 14 individual lessons, which in my classroom provides for 19 days of instruction:
5.1 Causes of the Great War - 2 days
5.2 The Spark that Lit the Fuse: Assassination in Sarajevo - 2 days
5.3 The Schlieffen Plan - 2 days
5.4 Stalemate and Trench Warfare on the Western Front - 1 day
5.5 Total War…on the Battlefield - 2 days (incl. Poetry of the Great War)
5.6 The Ottoman Fronts - 1 day
5.7 1916 on the Western Front: Verdun and the Somme - 1 day
5.8 Total War…on the Home Front - 1 day
5.9 1917: A Year of Mutiny - 1 day
5.10 Making the World Safe for Democracy - 1 day
5.11 The Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month of 1918 - 1 day
5.12 The Paris Peace Conference - 1 day
5.13 The Treaty of Versailles - 1 day
5.14 The Lost Generation - 2 days

Also included in this download is a 19-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the 14 lessons. In my classroom, students take Cornell style notes on the right side in their interactive notebooks; their corresponding visuals pages are glued on the left. These activities are completed before (vocabulary), during (visual labeling), and after (writing, thinking maps, etc.) completion of the presentation.

If you would like to download a full-preview for free of one of my units, in order to get an idea of the types of things you might find in them, please do a search on TpT for my unit titled “The Birth of Democracy.”

An alternate, add-on activity for the “Total War…on the Home Front” lesson in this unit can be found as a stand-alone download on TpT. Search for “The Great War - Propaganda Exercise.”

*There are references throughout the presentations to DVD clips I show during some of my presentations. These clips cannot, of course, be included with your download. All of the DVD clips that I use in this unit come from a single source:

- PBS: The Great War and the Shaping of the Twentieth Century

Thank you for downloading my lessons! Your feedback is always welcome.
