1 2 3 4 5 6 1. Inquiry Question The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian nationalist in 1914, is often cited as the spark that triggered World War I. How could one event initiate a war resulting in the deaths of millions of people? Click the newspaper to learn more. Image Source: Image courtesy of Smithsonian.com. The assassination was only the final spark – many other events led to the Great War. Next 2. Information sources 1 2 3 4 5 6 Next Analyze the following resources. Using Easy Bib Pro or a note taking method of your choice, describe the rising tension between European powers. You will use these notes later to construct your presentation. Militarism Militarism Background to the War Alliance System/Arms Race The Alliance System The Triple Alliance / The Triple Entente Background to the War Imperialism Imperialism Imperialism Nationalism Nationalism in Europe / Student Resources in Context: Nationalism Nationalism / Austria-Hungary Image Source: "Warfare on the Western Front." Online Media. World Book Advanced. World Book, 2015. Web. 6 Feb. 2015. *You will need headphones to listen to the videos on this page. 3. Student Activity 1 2 3 4 5 6 Evaluating resources is important in research. When using sources outside of the BCPS databases, you need to know whether the information is accurate and trustworthy, as well as how to properly cite it. Find one website on your own that helps you to answer the inquiry question on Slide 1. “How did 20th century political, social, and economic changes in Europe contribute to the outbreak of World War I?” – Use this evaluation tool to determine whether the site is credible and can be used in your research paper. If your source fails, it is not suitable for use. – Print out a copy of your completed form. – Be thorough in your justification (Narrative Evaluation). – You must include note cards from your credible source in your research paper (use the Easy Bib note card resource!) Next 4. Research Paper 1 2 3 4 5 6 You will now use your research notes to construct a three page research paper answering the essential question: How did 20th century political, social, and economic changes in Europe contribute to the outbreak of World War I? Your paper must: • Answer the essential question by demonstrating the causality of events • Be three pages • Be written in MLA format: double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font. • Include a bibliography/works cited page • Include INTERNAL CITATION. For help on internal citation, visit the OWL citation guide. Your research paper will be evaluated using the PARCC rubric. Image Source: Microsoft Clip Art Next 5. Enrichment Activities 1 2 3 Examine the following: Examine the following: • The Treaty of Versailles • The effects of the treaty on Germany • The Rise of Nationalism • American Nationalism Using what you know about nationalism and the causality of events leading to World War I, write a constructed response that details the events that led to the start of World War II. Was Germany justified in their decision to start another World War? Image Source: Student Resources in Context 4 5 6 Answer the following question in a constructed response. How does nationalism impact a country? How does it impact relationships between countries? Next 6. Teacher Support Materials 1 2 BCPS Curriculum: Grade 10 World History C3 Standards D2.His.1.9-12. Evaluate how historical events and developments were shaped by unique circumstances of time and place as well as broader historical contexts. D2.His.13.9-12. Critique the appropriateness of the historical sources used in a secondary interpretation. Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. ISTE NETS - National Educational Technology Standards for Students 3. Research and Information Fluency: Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. b. Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making: Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions. 3 4 5 6 Time Frame: Two 90 class periods. Differentiation strategies for this lesson: • Direct students to use learning tools included in our BCPSlicensed databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels/Lexiles, and embedded dictionaries. • Headphones are required for portions of this module. Notes to the teacher: • Collaborate with your school library media specialist to implement this lesson. • If you’d like to conduct an evaluation with your students, use the Crash Course episode 210: Who Started World War I?
