This set of Guided Notes goes hand-in-hand with the excellently illustrated PowerPoint of the same name. The lesson examines the state of the world after the Great War was finally over. Among the subjects covered:
+ The death, damage, and sheer destruction that was wrought by World War I
+ A thorough analysis of Woodrow Wilson's 14 Points
+ The main points of the Treaty of Versailles and the controversy surrounding it
+ The League of Nations
+ The redrawing of the maps of Europe and the Middle East
The Guided Notes that accompany the PowerPoint include two group activities that give your students an opportunity to closely examine the 14 Points, the Treaty of Versailles, and the effects of the Americans' refusal to join the League or sign the Treaty.
