We explored the causes and effects of World War I today by first collecting and organizing evidence from the textbook and other sources on the home front effects. We then talked briefly about the major factors leading to the war and specifically about why the U.S. became involved. We then spent a good portion of our time discussing the curtailment of Civil Liberties for Americans during the war and how the Supreme Court response represents historical continuity. We wrapped up briefly with a discussion over the response to the Treaty of Versailles in the U.S.
Tonight you need to finish up your Chapter 24 notes as we will be moving onward to the 1920's tomorrow! Also, don't forget that your online contributions to the last scored discussion are due before midnight tomorrow night!
