All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
The dream of the League of Nations would not make it after 1945. The 20s had been a challenge to the League in spite of the heartfelt intention countries had to keep peace and the economic prosperity. The darkness and desperation of the 30s were too tough a test for the “International Police Force” that had been Wilson’s most precious contribution for peace.
In your work on the failures of the League of Nations in the 1930s, we will work on two very important skills: keeping a record and note taking.
Each group will be expected to keep a working record of their working process using Storify. Here is an example of how Storify can be used to keep a record of a working process: The Berlin Wall. Your record should include websites, videos, sources, images and the presentation you make to share with the class.
As the presentations progress, you will have to take down notes and for this we will use a special type of mural. Check it out!
