[Dr. David Thornbird]


I.  World War 1 WebQuest

The WWI WebQuest is designed to help you answer the essential question "What is it like to be in a conflict". You will use primary sources to explore the experience of different participant's roles in World War I and what it may have been like to have been in 'their shoes'.

[Stage 1] Synthesize an understanding of how war affected your particular participant's viewpoint and experience of this war.
[Stage 2]: Share this understanding with a larger group comprised of all the different types of participants, in order to be able to write an analysis and response to the essential question.
[Stage 3]: Provide a group presentation, to the rest of the class, to help all of us understand "What is it like to be in a conflict".
