14 Points Flag Project for World War I & Woodrow Wilson
This creative assignment tasks students with analyzing 6 of President Woodrow Wilson's famous 14 Points and then creating advertising flags to promote them.
As you know, the US famously rejected the Treaty of Versailles because the public felt the US might get dragged into further conflicts. This assignment allows students to think creatively about how each of his ideas would promote peace and be in America's best interests.
Each of Wilson's first six points are provided in simple terms for students to read. This way, rather than struggling to understand fancier language and higher reading levels, students can focus on why each specific point was important.
Students then can use their artistic or advertising skills to design symbols and flags that promote the main idea of each point. I usually have my students then volunteer to present one of their flags to the class.
