Students were given a PowerPoint presentation that covered information regarding U.S. entry into World War I, life on the home front during World War I, and limited information on the war’s aftermath.
Student Learning Objectives:
1. Students will evaluate their peer editor of their research papers using a distributed Rubric.
2. Students will explore the different causes of U.S. entry into World War I through discussion and a group activity.
