World War I

1. Uneasy peace Grips Europe






Objective

Students will identify the role of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism in the increased tensions among European nations.



Activities

Warm-Up: Have students work as a table to create a flow chart explaining the relationship between the Industrial Revolution, Age of Imperialism, and the Great War (World War I). Then have several groups volunteer to share their flow chart with the class by drawing it on the whiteboard.



Imperialism Assessment: Hand back the graded Imperialism Unit Assessment. Explain that the class did significantly better on this assessment. Ask what made the difference this time. Encourage those who did not meet proficiency, to retake the assessment.

An Uneasy Peace Grips Europe: Have students read the “An Uneasy Peace Grips Europe” section in the Modern World History textbook on pages 363-364. They can choose to read silently or quietly with a partner.

Guided Reading: As students finish the reading, have them work with a partner to define the following words: nationalism, imperialism, and militarism. For each term, have them also explain how it increased tensions among European nations.

A Voice from the Past: As a class, reread the “Voice from the Past” quote by Nobel Prize winner Frederic Passy. Discuss what he meant by Europe blowing “sky-high.” Then have students write a ½-page personal response to the concern that Passy shared with many Europeans. What does Passy fear will happen? Why? What evidence supports his argument?

Assignment
