Middle school students spent the week diving into a deeper understanding of World War II upon concluding their study of the Great Depression. Each class began its study by combining our shared knowledge of the war on the white board and sharing questions they had. Students communicated a desire to learn about this war from a global perspective, so we are taking our time to walk through the events that led into it and the way different countries were woven in. We are utilizing the many resources available to study this war, and students are hungry for more knowledge! I’m thrilled to see their desire to understand this topic fully. Next week, we will study America’s involvement in the war and what it looked like both abroad and on the home front.
