1 7 th Grade Performance Assessment World War I Scenario: It is April 2, 1917; you are a United States Congressman. President Woodrow Wilson just made a speech asking Congress to declare war against Germany. You need to help the other congressmen from your state decide if they will vote for or against the declaration of war. You have assembled a collection of data to support the argument you will present to your fellow congressmen, including pictures, maps, documents, and newspaper articles on the war. The time to vote is coming up quickly, so you will have only have 2-3 minutes to convince them that declaring war is either good or bad for the country. Task: 1. Look over the documents that you have uncovered in your research. Decide whether or not you will vote to declare war on Germany. 2. Create a brief presentation using one of the presentation options below. Your argument needs to be supported by using at least 2 of the sources in this packet. You must show or refer to the sources you are using to support your argument during your presentation. Presentation Options Speech Write down the argument you will present to your fellow congressmen as you try to convince them that entering the war is either good or bad for the country. Practice to be sure it lasts 2-3 minutes when you read it. PowerPoint Presentation Create a 5-slide PowerPoint presentation highlighting the key points in your position on this issue. Informational Pamphlet Create a trifold pamphlet that congressmen could use to show their constituents how entering the war is either good or bad for the country. Be prepared to explain it to the class. Propaganda Poster Create a poster that congressmen could use to show their constituents how entering the war is either good or bad for the country. Rubric: MASTERY PROGRESSING BEGINNING I used multiple pieces of evidence to accurately support my opinion on whether or not the United States should declare war on Germany. I used evidence to support my opinion on whether or not the United States should declare war on Germany. I can give my opinion to the President on whether or not western the United States should declare war on Germany.

2 SOURCE #1 Think: What is the president asking Congress to do in this speech? Why does he think it s the right thing to do? Why does he think this war should be a concern of the United States? The world must be made safe for democracy We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind -President Wilson, from his address to Congress, April 2, 1917

3 SOURCE #2 Think: What event set off the war? Did it involve the United States? Why did so many countries get involved?

4 Source #3 Think: What happened to the Lusitania in May 1915? Who was on it? What was on it? Did this event have any effect on Americans?

5 Source #4 Think: Which countries are involved in the war? Which countries are allied with each other? Which side will the U.S. join if Congress declares war on Germany? Who else would we be fighting? map can be printed in either color or grayscale, or both, depending on resources available.

6 SOURCE #5 Think: The Zimmermann telegram (February 1917) was sent in code. Who sent it? Who was the intended receiver? What did it say? What did it have to do with the U.S.? How did Americans react? telegram in code translation of coded telegram

7 SOURCE #6 Think: What new technologies are being used in the war? What is the effect of this new type of warfare?

8 SOURCE #7 Think: How many soldiers does the U.S. have at the time of President Wilson s speech in April 1917? How well prepared is the U.S. to fight a war? What does the U.S. government need to be prepared to do if we declare war on Germany? What will regular Americans need to do? United States Land Forces in World War I April 1917 May 1917 June 1917 July 1917 August 1917 September 1917 October 1917 November 1917 December 1917 January 1918 February 1918 March 1918 April 1918 May 1918 June 1918 July 1918 August 1918 September 1918 October 1918 November 1918 December 1918 January 1919 February 1919 March 1919 April 1919 May Number of soldiers in the American Army, in thousands, on the first of each month
