Average Rating 0 Reviews View This lesson helps students to develop their reading, writing, and analytical skills, while also learning more about World War I and the modern Middle East as part of the World History curriculum. Students will read primary accounts (diaries and newspaper accounts), analyze visual images (photographs, drawings), conduct research, and write/create a documentary or “news program.” In this lesson, students read a brief overview of World War I in the Middle East. Pairing with a partner, students analyze 3 documents: a diary or other personal account, a contemporary newspaper article, and a photo/drawing. Students then share what they have learned with the class. Finally, in groups of 3 or 4, students research and create either a short documentary film OR a performance project on a topic related to World War I in the Middle East.
