ABSTRACT: The “World at War” class will focus on 20th century history, with the main focus of the class being World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. For each, the students will be able to get a more in depth analysis on the cause and effects of each of these events, as well as the time necessary to create projects and analyze media from both primary and secondary sources about these events. The class will be available as an elective for the Social Studies curriculum and will be available for students in grade levels 11 and 12. The breakdown of the class will be World War I and World War II for the 1st quarter, and then the Cold War for the 2nd quarter. The class will incorporate and adhere to the newly formed Common Core Standards on a variety of issues on the 11th and 12th grade standards; such as: -Evaluate various explanations for actions or events and determine which explanation best accords with textual evidence, acknowledging where the text leaves matters uncertain. -Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media. -Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary that makes clear the relationships among the key details and ideas. -Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
