Today we begin our examination of WWI and the subsequent interwar period.
Today’s work will involve a webquest with response at the bottom.
NOTE TAKER: MAINQuiz
*Evidence can come from the film study, the notes below, or the interactive*
The Great War itself is not really a part of our curriculum. However, the beginning and end of the war are in our curriculum (weird, I know) so we will keep those ideas in mind.
You need to know that the causes of WWI are what I call the MAIN 5.
5(S)tupid People -assassination, sinking of the Lusitania, people spoiling for a fight (thinking war is grand)

Today’s major assessment is a webquest using an award winning interactive medium.
You must watch AND interact with the following components of the feature:
- Origins 3. Empires 6. Endings
Additionally, watch and interact with at least one other segment of the interactive.
1) Summarize some details in ONE segment you watched that got your attention most. Comment on why this information was interesting to you.
2) Summarize some details in ANOTHER segment you watched that got your attention most. Comment on why this information was interesting to you.
3) Describe some of the information in the “interactive” supplement for either topic you explored. Comment on why the creators of the website might have chosen to include this information and how useful/interesting it was for you
Note: You may use any segments except 1, 6, & 7 for your answers. Additionally, They Shall Not Grow Old, which we’ll watch tomorrow, may be used.
All material including the documentary and interactive may be used to fill out your note taker above.
