Junior and Senior IB History Class Discussion Prompt

This is for both the IB Contemporary History and IB History of the Americas classes.  This coming Wednesday, 19 September, we will hold a Socratic student-led discussion of historical controversies surrounding the study and memory of the First World War.  All students will need to go to the BBC’s World War One history website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/worldwars/wwone/

Select one article from the section titled Debates and Controversies of World War One.  Identify and write down the thesis of the article, whether you agree with the thesis, and why.  Discussion leaders will of course need to read all of the articles in the section.

Congratulations to the seniors who turned in their IA drafts successfully today, and I will see you all next week!
