This is the set of Guided Notes that accompanies the highly informative and visually stimulating PowerPoint. The lesson covers the state of the world prior to the breakout of the Great War. The causes of World War I are examined.
A major part of the lesson deals with the role of the United States in world affairs before entering the Great War and the various reasons the Americans joined the Allied Powers.
