The students will tap into a knowledge base of background information dealing with the World War I and II. The students will be studying the wars in World History class. The World Wars have left a significant impact on all countries. The United States economy and status thrived due to the wars. The United States enter into a new era as a world power and icon for other nations. Students will challenge themselves with questions about the future of the world by looking at the past events. The students will need to stretch their minds towards solutions for global conflicts. Why should the United States be the "watch dog for the world"? I hope students will become active citizens and vocal leaders. My goal is to encourage students to investigate and deliberate past events and relate the information to current events in world.
