Leaders, Laborers, and Other Perspectives of World War II
How did the women in France feel about their country’s involvement in World War II? Class groups are assigned a country involved in WWII, and individuals within the group adopt the point of view of leaders, laborers, businessmen, women, religious leaders, or philosophers. After researching the war from these multiple perspectives, individuals write a letter to the editor from the point of view of this person, and the groups present their findings. After all groups have presented, class members compose a reflective essay about what they have learned from the experience.
