World War I

This collection is intended to introduce students to World War I in a World History course. It provides primary sources such as diary entries and government documents. It also contains virtual exhibits from musemums, which allows students to learn about how the war affected lives not involved in warfare. This collection also contains a case study that gives context to what may have caused the war. The sources also attempt to be diverse in the sense that more topics are addressed alongside the war, such as the post war era and racism in America. As long as students have access to internet, they can stay up to date with the Unit lesson if they miss class. This collection will provide them with the necessary tools to learn about the first World War in a global perspective; furthermore, it allows them to explore more sources and stories that will not be covered in class.
