March 8

Today you worked in small groups as representatives of Russia, France, Great Britain, and Austria-Hungary, and tried to avert the outbreak of the First World War. Hopefully you had fun!

You went through the "recipe for success" today in class, and you had a chance to see a sample WRA II essay sheet. In small groups you should brainstormed argumentation and evidence. In tomorrow's class you will get the actual Unit 1 WRA II Essay question sheet.
