This assignment packet is a comprehensive approach to nationalism and WWI. It uses various literacy strategies and appeals to a variety of learning styles. Parts of assignments 1, 3, and 6 can be found separately in my store, but I recommend this packet as a bundle. It has a cover page telling the page numbers of each assignment and a rubric for easy grading. All in all, this could easily give you classwork/homework assignments for six to seven days of class.
