PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The following is a three-day (75 minute periods) multimedia, common-core based lesson on the major turning points of World War II (mostly European theater). The lesson focuses mainly on the Miracle at Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the D-Day invasion of France. The activities included in this lesson are:

• Critical thinking questions for students to answer while watching various movie clips (clips not included). The movies are: The Great Dictator (Hinkle speech scene), Atonement (Miracle at Dunkirk scene), Enemy at the Gates (invasion of Stalingrad scene), Saving Private Ryan (D-Day invasion scene), and Band of Brothers (TV Miniseries). Several are available on youtube and others can be purchased on Amazon or are available at your local library for free.
• Primary and secondary source readings followed by an enormous amount of fact-based questions and critical thinking questions easily adaptable for whole-class discussion.
• Fill-in-the-blank notes sheet (answer key included)

I also offer this worksheet bundled with several others from the World War II era...
