Prompt: Why did the U.S. enter WWI?
These materials have been developed over the years for an essay that I have been doing with my students that meets the Washington State CBA (classroom based assessment), "Causes of Conflict," requirements, which addresses the need for inclusion of a social science perspective and connection to a current issue. You can do a search to look for those materials, if necessary.
Of course, these materials could be adapted for any approach to the topic as they are measures of scaffolding to walk a student through the topics and research for putting together an essay.
All materials are in WORD format (some old, some new), so adjustment is easily done to meet your needs or style.
Included in these materials are:
1. graphic organizer
2. general topic exploration (brainstorm)
3. topics narrowing, research beginning (narrowing)
4. research expansion, organization (focusing)
5. Social Science "Cheat Sheet" (WA ST required inclusion)
6. general sample outline
