What qualifications must a war meet in order to be called "just?" Possibly starting with Aquinas or Mahabarata?

Would love to get more info on the African American women who served in the WAAC, where can I find that?

Yes - THIS QUESTION - needs to be answered. I, too, have been nominated. And I can find NOWHERE on this site that allows a teacher nominee to input supporting materials. And the deadline is fast approaching. Please fix this!

I had the opposite. I had to do a research paper on some type of slavery event and I found out about the Grimke Sisters and saw that I agreed with almost everything I read!

Great essay!

I have to agree. It is not realistic if your state mandates end of course tests or your students are taking AP United States History.

This is a great opportunity for students to practice the source analysis skills associated with the Common Core. The various audio, visual and text sources provide chances for close-source study with terminology, main idea, etc.

Is this a Primary or Secondary source?

This is a great lesson, and easily revised for different grades and ability levels. One thing that would be an excellent addition is a rubric for writing the essay.

I agree that it is important for students to understand the meaning of the Gettysburg Address, but really, how can you teach meaning if you are to "resist the temptation to put the speech into context"? The context of the Gettysburg Address is the important part. It's just a speech until you understand the surrounding events. If this lesson is really for highschoolers, I think they should have something more in-depth. They also ought to spend 5 days focusing on something other than a speech. While the Gettysburg Address is important, there are many more historical events that deserve attention as well.

I'm trying to reshape these questions away from "shoulds" and yes/no, so for example, I took # 84 Should the United States fight wars to make the world safe for democracy? Or: Should the United States have entered World War I? and changed it to: For what objectives was America fighting in World War I? I think this question could then be plugged into any war and perhaps students could see a trend over time as to why the US becomes embroiled in wars. Thoughts?
