Guthriegabs About: D Day and Why It Was the Longest Day of WWII

Why is the remembrance of D Day important to ending World War Two? Learn who was involved, the technology, and the obstacles to their success. I bring my personal experience from talking with survivors that lived on the coast of France.

Class Experience

Students will be able to understand the purpose of D-Day.
Students will be able to locate the beaches of the D-Day landings.
Students will recall stories of individuals that survived the longest day in history. 
Students will understand why it is important to remember those that gave their lives on the beaches of Normandy. 
I have taught World History for over 15 years. I was the lead history teacher for my school and I've written numerous history curriculum guides. The expertise on this subject comes from the many trips I have taken to the Normandy coast of France. I have walked along the white crosses in the American cemetery and stood in the German bunkers. 
None, I will provide recommendations to learn more about the subject. Students may want to watch the 1964 movie, The Longest Day as a follow up to the class. The movie uses many historical events to portray what happened on June 6, 1944. 
No material necessary.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • National Archives
Informal discussion
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is about a major battle in World War II. The class does not focus on specific deaths, but the subject of death will be part of the class. My goal is to help students to understand that all life should be valued and not forgotten.

 I speak French and love to travel to countries where I can immerse...
