Standards Focus: Historical Context and Exploring Expository Writing - Hitler's Plan
Use graphic organizers to uncover the structure of an article. In this historical context and expository writing worksheet, class members read the article "Hitler's Plan" and complete a chart with events from the article to create a World War II timeline. Groups then use the timeline and the article to create a map of the countries Hitler invaded. Young historians could use this same process to write an article about the context for another period of history.
