In this activity, students answer the overarching question: Did the Treaty of Versailles Achieve its Goal in Promoting Lasting Peace? First students work in groups to summarize the main idea of each document. I have modified this activity by having them highlight the sentence or aspect of the document that best summarizes the main idea. This can cut down on time. Once students have finished summarizing the documents, they must craft a thesis statement where they choose a side to argue. The worksheet guides them through the process of creating a thesis. Then, they will find evidence to support their argument and begin the process of writing their paragraphs. This worksheet guides them through the process of writing an evidence based paragraph. By the time they finish completing the worksheet, they have in essence created their paragraph! Answer keys for both the document handout and the paragraph are included, as well as a sample paragraph I use with them! If you would like the document in doc. format instead of PDF, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share you an editable copy!
