One goal of the lesson is to teach students about determining the role of a citizen in the United States and analyzing ways the government used propaganda to manipulate individual’s involvement in WWI. A second goal of the lesson is to teach students how to analyze primary sources to compare and contrast the expectations of the involvement with the realities of war. Students will end the lesson by using new information to create their own accounts of World War I.
