After today's formative vocabulary quiz on WWI you will work with your group to begin preparing for your role in next class' formative debate on the most significant cause of WWI.
Your group has been assigned a cause you will be arguing is the most "significant"; your group is also assigned to another cause that you will be refuting in your rebuttal in the debate and will need to develop a counterclaim and provide evidence to strengthen your argument that the other cause is less significant--and evidence to support your claim why your cause is the most significant cause of the war. This debate isn't about winning (tho. that can be fun) but about learning how to develop strong arguments you can support and how to develop strong counterclaims that serve the purpose of both refuting other claims and further strengthening your own claim/argument.

To be ready to work on the DBQ, students should have completed the homework, having found a primary or secondary source prompt (political cartoon, letter, speech, map, graph, etc.) representing Nationalism prior to 1914. Students should have completed the OPVL for this source prior to coming to today's class.
