Where are we now?

Content from Last Week: Causes of WWII
You were to identify and analyze the causes of WWII as a means of independent/group study/research (depending on your learning style). If you feel you need to review this material, here are some sites that I have used and that students have shared with me:

http://www.rpfuller.com/gcse/history/6.html (website)
http://search.discoveryeducation.com/ (video segments...pvmac pvmac)
http://www.johndclare.net/RoadtoWWII7a.htm (expansive articles and intrepretations)
http://www.history.com/search?search-field=causes+of+WWII&x=0&y=0 (a variety of topics from WWII including causes, leaders, the Homefront...which is what your web page is called hint hint, and so on...)
*Please find some sites on your own and share those here...

New Content...all of this is fair game this week :)
*Maybe divide this content knowledge up in your groups, maybe not, but here are your topics:
  • Hitler's Rise to Power
  • America's Involvement in WWII (Battles/Pacific/Homefront/Pearl Harbor)
  • Global Perspective (you must do this site and then branch out: http://www.history.com/shows/wwii-in-hd/interactives/inside-wwii-interactive
  • Battle Strategies (key battles/tactics)
  • World Leaders/Govt./Famous Faces/Famous Words
  • Mystery Category
  • American Presidents: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/presidents/index.html

COMPLETE PVONLINE...THE HOMEFRONT UNIT...work at your own pace. :) PVONLINE is due Friday. When you do the pacifism response, you only need to do yours.

***IT WOULD BE INCREDIBLY WISE TO KNOW THE WORDS FOR a date which will live in infamy*****
