Today you will be getting your feedback on your formative argumentative essay. At this time, you may need to develop a stronger, more compelling and specific claim. Once you have a more specific claim to frame your argument, you will continue your research on WWI and find more evidence and details to help you substantiate and explain your position on the most significant underlying cause of WWI. You are encouraged (and expected) to use a variety of resources for your evidence. You will be expected to incorporate more historical evidence and details, further explore the important concepts of the WWI conflict -- in order to be able to demonstrate your understanding of these important concepts in your essay. You are also expected to use the relevant terminology, when appropriate, in your writing.
