    As a 7th grader, I went to study in Switzerland all by myself (imagine me carrying my violin case, laptop, 2 huge suitcases, 1 backpack, and 1 hand carrier as a little girl).
    I was independent and mature, but I was very, very naive and inexperienced -- I didn't quite know what was going on in the world outside of my town in Korea.
    incredibly widened.

    was immersed
    all aspects.
    Eating pasta, risotto, Italian pizza, steak, gelato, and salad everyday was not too great, I have to admit.
    That was just a bit of my "special" part of life.
    and here I am! I'm already on the way to graduate in 130 days or so.
    But no, I promise I will be completely immune to senioritis because I have to work hard for another 7 months before I get to apply to Korean colleges..
    AP Econ.
    Currently I like all of my classes that I'm taking, and I'm very sure that Sociology will be included in the list.
    at it,
    I play soccer and I swim.
    I enjoy singing and my #1 list of "Things to Do After I graduate" is learning how to play guitar so that I can sing and play at the same time.. someday.

    What did the demographics of the U.S. have to do with Wilson's rhetoric concerning neutrality?
    Wilson loudly proclaimed U.S. neutrality in 1914. In 1917, the U.S. entered WWI (and helped lead the Allies to victory in 1918). What changed in just 3 years? Did Wilson no longer belong to the category of "every man who loves America?" Why did the U.S. decide to join the Allied side? How neutral was the U.S. between 1914-1917? Open up the PDF file below and try to figure it out!

    Day 2: "Selling the War"
    During the last class you saw several reasons that may have led to U.S. involvement in World War I. When a nation, especially a democratic one, goes from peacetime to wartime, it must "sell" the cause(s) of the war to its citizens. However, not all sales pitches work to a general audience. For example, few presidents could inspire many citizens to enlist in the army and risk 'life and limb' by saying "Fight for the U.S. because it will be great for business and we can avoid economic collapse if we do not get repayed for all of our loans!!!!" In World War I, what two main "selling points" did Wilson use to get the American people onboard with fighting the war? HOW did he get the American people to "buy into" his arguments? Be specific on the 'how' question (2nd site is great for this) The following websites should help you tremendously:
    George Creel, The Man in Charge of Getting People to Say 'Yes' to World War I
    The PowerPoint below has several examples of the propaganda produced during World War I. What were some of your favorite strategies used during this time period? What were the goals of the different propaganda types?
    {} WWI WWI Poster Propaganda.ppt {WWI Poster Propaganda.ppt}
    And finally, answer the following questions at the end of your class journals (we have not used these in awhile!), each in a detailed paragraph or two.
    Journal Entry 1: Why do you think countries (such as the US in WWI) spend so much energy on a propaganda campaign for their own citizens during wartime? Also, what do you think would happen if they do (did) not?
    2 Questions for Today: (1) What happened to freedom of speech during and immediately after World War I? (2) How did the US change as a result of the war?
    Part A: How do the Espionage Act, Sedition Act, yelling "fire" in a crowded theater, and "clear and present danger" relate to freedom of speech and World War I? You should look these up on your own and tie them all together in small groups. The PPT that follows can help you get started:
    {} WWI WWI Attacks on Civil Liberties.ppt {WWI Attacks on Civil Liberties.ppt}
    Part B: How did the "Great War" affect worldwide technology? How did it cause changes for women, minorities, and the US in the world? Your teacher will help go over this with you.
    Part C: In the remaining time, plan ahead for your chapter teaching day.
