  • The night before, students will read their textbook chapter on the causes of WWI and select if they feel the USA should enter WWI or not.
  • When we come to class the next day, the class will divide into pro-war or anti-war groups. The students will then make pro- or anti-war posters trying to persuade the other group to join their side.
  • We will then present our posters and ideas at the end of class and each group will be given their closing arguments.
  • Each student will also have to write a paragraph explaining their take on why they chose pro- or anti-war. It will be due the next day.
