Essential and Guiding Questions: How was World War I different than most wars that preceded it (both on the battlefields and on the home front)? What were the consequences of the war when it ended? How was propaganda used to bolster the war effort? What is a command economy? What is a market economy?
Study Guides Questions Addressed 7. What were the changes made on the home front--- political, economic, social and cultural? Why were they made? What were the effects of each? Possible Short Answer/Essay Question: 12. Historians identify World War One as the first modern war. This is due to a number of factors like the embracing of the total war, the new mass destruction weapons, the willingness to sacrifice millions of lives for little land gain, having war target civilians in their attacks, and the amount of control exerted by the governments on the home front to put everything into the war. Be able to examine in depth the above concepts with historical examples and evidence like primary source quotes, statistics, etc…

2012 World War One British Home Front Annotated Illustration Group Project Grade Sheet Group Members’ Names:Period: Topic: __________A) An Annotated Illustration is a detailed drawing of a historical scene. Key characteristics, events, people are incorporated into the scene like a photograph or an oil painting; they are integrated into the scene. IT IS NOT LIKE A COLLAGE! You cannot repeat aspects. Each of the main aspects is identified with either a number or letter that corresponds with the annotations below. You should use historical images you have downloaded from the computer of the actual events, places, etc … to be as historically accurate as possible and also to save time--- SEVEN OF THE IMAGES MUST BE PRIMARY SOURCE VISUALS You may also draw in images and backgrounds to bring the scene to life. Each should be numbered from 1-15, so they correspond with the annotations/key. The illustrations should be in color. You may go beyond the minimum of FIFTEEN for extra credit points. __________B) There should be a minimum of FIFTEEN different historical aspects in the illustration for your assigned aspect: DORA/Rationing/Shortages, Internments, Propaganda/Censorship, Recruitment/Conscientious Objectors, and Roles of Women. A and B together are worth 75 Points.
__________C) The Annotations are the key that explains what is happening in the illustration/scene. For each of the FIFTEEN historical images in the illustration, there should be THREE well-developed sentences that identify the facts, details, people, and events, for each historical image. The annotations should address Who, What, When, Where, How, Why, Importance, and Effects. For SEVEN of the annotation, you should include/embed a primary source quote or statistic that supports your point. This will only count as one sentence. Each annotation explanation should be written in your own words. This should be typed, spell-checked, grammar-checked, and edited for capitalization errors. It should be in Size 12 Calibri Font. It should be attached to the bottom of the poster, so when they are hung, people can read the annotations and look at the images at the same time. Worth 75 Points __________D) The annotations should correspond with your numbers, be typed, spell-checked, and grammar-checked. If not, it is 5% off the value of the activity. __________E) The students were ready for the start of presentations and put a good effort into teaching the class about their assigned aspect of Home Front life.
