I use these resources in an American history course when teaching World War I with tenth graders. I created these resources when I needed to teach a handful of WWI topics in a short amount of time!

These stations cover a diverse group of people and topics. It focuses on economic topics like war bonds and political topics like women's suffrage. These stations include the experiences of women, German Americans, and African Americans during World War I.

I love the mixture of political cartoons, propaganda, primary sources, quotations, and secondary source texts. I hope these resources are as useful for you as they were for me!
