The Causes and Course of the great war Nathan Hagihara Edsc 304, ss18, csu fullerton

Content standards:

Content standards 10.5 Students analyze the causes and course of the First World War. 1. Analyze the arguments for entering into war presented by leaders from all sides of the Great War and the role of political and economic rivalries, ethnic and ideological conflicts, domestic discontent and disorder, and propaganda and nationalism in mobilizing the civilian population in support of “total war.” 2. Examine the principal theaters of battle, major turning points, and the importance of geographic factors in military decisions and outcomes (e.g., topography, waterways, distance, climate). 3. Explain how the Russian Revolution and the entry of the United States affected the course and outcome of the war. 4. Understand the nature of the war and its human costs (military and civilian) on all sides of the conflict, including how colonial peoples contributed to the war effort. 5. Discuss human rights violations and genocide, including the Ottoman government’s actions against Armenian citizens.

BIG IDEAS & UNIT GOALS:

BIG IDEAS & UNIT GOALS BIG IDEAS What factors, whether political, social, economic, ethnic, or philosophical, led to the breaking of the First World War? What were the major battles of the war and how did the wins or losses affect the overall feelings of the war? To what extent did the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917 affect the Allies during World War I? How significant was the role played by the United States in World War I? How were human rights impacted by the outbreak and subsequent end of the Great War? To what extent did colonialism play a role during the First World War? UNIT GOALS Understand the various factors that led to the outbreak of the First World War in Europe. Describe the role played by the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Russia during World War I. Discuss the impacts that colonialism and nationalism played during the course of the First World War.

21st CENTURY SKILLS:

21 st CENTURY SKILLS Students will communicate to others, in small and large group formats, while discussing the factors leading up to World War I and the role colonialism and nationalism played in the conflict. Students will collaborate on the end-of-unit project, as they design a presentation. Students will gain an understanding of the cultures affected by the outbreak of the war.

Student Learning Objectives:

Student Learning Objectives Goal 1: Understand the various factors that led to the outbreak of the First World War in Europe. Acceptable Evidence: Students can write a short essay about the factors and events leading up to the outbreak of World War I.

Student learning objectives:

Student learning objectives Goal 2: Describe the role played by the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Russia during World War I. Acceptable Evidence: Students can write a short essay discussing the impact of at least two of the countries on the outcome of the war and compare and contrast their roles.

STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES Goal 3: Discuss the impacts that colonialism and nationalism played during the course of the First World War . Acceptable Evidence: Students can present a short Prezi presentation to the class on the roles played by various countries’ colonies and nationalist movements on the war effort.

ACTIVITIES:

ACTIVITIES Students will collect information on the role played by three of the countries during the war and place them into a LiveBinder . Students will create a Quizlet deck, detailing major events spearheaded by the countries they have researched and detailing significant events they have large-scale impacts upon. Students will create a WikiProject via PowerSchool Learning that details their group’s research into the colonies of each major opponent and any nationalist movements in the country. Students will create a Prezi organizer that breaks their research down into organized chunks. Students will use Knovio to voiceover the presentation and subsequently share and/or display to the entire class.

WHY I CHOSE THIS TOPIC:

WHY I CHOSE THIS TOPIC History is an incredibly rich field of study, enveloping centuries of events, people, and seminal items. World War I and II are arguably two of the world’s most important conflicts in the second millennium. The Great War, or WWI, was one of the first major global conflicts that was extensively covered by journalists. This allowed for the printing and distribution, eventually digitally, of photographs and stories from the front lines of war. Thus, there are a wide array of different primary and secondary sources available online for students to access and explore. The unit provides ample activities to foster technological prowess and expertise in the study of the First World War.
