Due Date Assignment Description
3/26/2020 The Great War

Here is what you do today:

  1. Grab a drink and/or a snack.

  2. Find a comfortable place to sit with your device.

  3. Watch the video uploaded to teams (look under "posts")

  4. Take notes on what you see in whatever manner you feel is appropriate (believe it or not, it took longer to upload the video than it did to record it).

  5. Answer the following question on a separate Word document to upload here on teams:

Excluding the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, which was the spark, what underlying cause of the war do you think was the most important?

You can, and should discuss other causes than the one you choose, explaining why they are less important. Your answer should be at least 8 sentences.

This is the first, but also the last, time I do this. I recorded this last week, but due to the more stringent restrictions put in place since, I am not allowed back into the school.

We can have a Zaucus today. It does not have to be long. I just have a few announcements. If you have already watched the video by that point, we can talk about that as well.
