VIDEO: Oversimplified WWI Part 1
Start at minute 1:16 to avoid ad. This is quick background for the your memes.
We will learn some of this information (the war in Asia) later in the unit.
- Make a Google Doc with your table group. Each group is responsible for 2 pages minimum of notes. Put in on Classroom.
- Include all relevant notes and sources with your names on what you did individually. Be sure to include all the BATTLES and CATEGORIES (see below). Put in on Classroom.
- Statements and questions based on your own research is a requirement for an A.
- I will select 5 students randomly + randomly assign:
- The Battle (D-Day or Stalingrad) AND
- Categories (“This battle was more impressive because….”
- Impact on the course of the war.
- The conditions people faced in the battle (can include either side and can include civilians for Stalingrad).
- The scale and/or the planning.
- Some other factors of your choosing.
- The 5 students in the circle will then have a conversation, building off each other’s ideas, to make an argument in favor of the BATTLE being the “most impressive” because of the CATEGORY.
- Counter-arguments from the audience.
- People can tap in to the circle.
- I will then call 5 more up and repeat.
