This packet includes an original Document Based Question set regarding American opinions on the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations. An essay prompt is included, as well as a scoring rubric. The packet also includes a handout which can be used as the springboard for a lesson on DBQ essay writing skills, as well as a second handout which students can used for peer-editing after the completion of their essays.
I have found this to be a very important topic for helping students develop a deep understanding of the complexities surrounding early attempts at international organizations and governance, as well as the forces at play within the United States that fought to steer the nation towards internationalism or towards isolationism.
Done in class, this set of activities comprises roughly FOUR school days.
