Paris Peace Conference: Writing a Treaty To End World War I. Grade 10/11 Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
Niles, Georgette Wilbur
This problem-based learning unit asks students to assume roles as experts from countries that participated in World War I. These experts will meet both in expert groups and with their respective country representatives to determine what terms, in four specific areas, should be included in the treaty that will formally end the war. Next, they must decide as countries whether they will sign the treaty they have negotiated. Finally, students will compare the treaty they create with the Treaty of Versailles to determine which treaty would most likely ensure long lasting peace in Europe. Students are provided with background information, detailed instructions, and online resources. The teacher's notes explain the unit's correlation to history/social science and language arts standards, suggest day-by-day teaching strategies, present a culminating assessment exercise, and provide an evaluation rubric, a student evaluation form, and a group evaluation form.
