To illustrate the horrors of trench warfare and the reasons for low morale among many WWI soldiers, the class watched Paths of Glory. We will finish the film on Friday.

Students watched The Atomic Cafe, an documentary tracing the early development of the American nuclear program, and implications of the program for the U.S. both domestically and internationally.

We looked at a virtual reality tour of a WWI trench. I then distributed the WWI packet, and gave students time to work on the notes completion section.

We discussed the Schlieffen Plan and its failure, and the Battle of Tannenberg. I then showed part of Episode Two, Stalemate, from The Great War to illustrate the origins and conditions of trench warfare.

Welcome back from Spring Break! I trust that everyone is ready to get back to work!

  • The first part of the period I talked about the removal of persons of Japanese descent from the west coast of the U.S. and the events and issues surrounding President Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066.
  • I then started to discuss Roosevelt’s decision to authorize the program to build the atomic bomb.  I will continue with this tomorrow.

Don’t forget to check out AP exam review books from me (outside of class time)!

The classes wrapped up the Alliance Game activity, and then discussed how alliances pulled the warring powers of WWI Europe (already inspired by nationalism and militarism) into what might have otherwise remained a local dispute.
