Join me as we examine the causes and legacy of World War II, and learn about the tremendous impact it had on Europe in the mid 20th century.

This course seeks to examine the big picture causes and legacies of the war rather than examining every detail of each battle. This course will be taught using visual aids via PowerPoint in a...
- The consequences of World War I and the worldwide depression set the stage for the Russian Revolution, the rise of totalitarianism, aggressive Axis expansion, and the policy of appeasement which in turn led to World War II. - Oppression and discrimination resulted in the Holocaust during World War II. - World War II devastated most of Europe and Asia, led to the occupation of Eastern Europe and Japan, and began the atomic age.
I am a licensed middle school and high Social Studies teacher in the state of Ohio. I have been teaching Social Studies to middle and high school students for the last four years. I have used this same lesson with students in the classroom and it has always been highly engaging. I also have a Bachelor's degree in both Education and History. Both my teaching license in Integrated Social Studies (grades 7-12) and my Bachelor's degree in History qualify me to teach this introductory course on World War II.
Homework is always optional. I believe learners would benefit from implementing the information they learn in class, however, I also understand that each learner is unique. Learners will analyze primary source documents and answer comprehension questions based on a primary source. These activities should not take more than one hour to complete
Learners will be assessed informally in each class through verbal comprehension checks and class discussion. Each class will begin with a quick review of the activities from the previous week's class to ensure students understood the material. At the end of each unit, students will complete a Kahoot, which will act as an informal summative assessment of the unit.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course is centered on one of the deadliest events in human history. While I do not include any images that one might consider overly graphic the topics and the content are certainly emotionally heavy but are an integral part of understanding the impact and legacy of World War II. Additionally, this course utilizes Kahoot.
