Product Description
World War I and German-American Loyalty Speech Analysis Worksheet

This short but amazing primary source speech from America's Ambassador to Germany in 1917 questions the loyalty of German-Americans in the lead-up to World War I.

It is amazing to think that such a prestigious office-holder could speak such views and makes for a great lesson on prejudices that Americans held at the time.

This download features the text of the speech along with a link to the actual audio recording as well so your students can listen and follow along!

After reading and listening to the speech, students can complete the attached 8 critical thinking questions. An answer key for this is included for your convenience.

This speech launched a great discussion in my class about how racism was so common in the early 1900's and even toward a group that had been common in America for centuries. Very powerful and important for our students to understand!

Thanks for looking!
