Hist 12: Wed, 18 April
Today we discussed the causes of the Second World War PPT. We reviewed the CASPRR worksheet and looked at some David Low political cartoons from 1939-40. We noted how many of them are associated with the theme of mistrust or hidden intentions. Finally I assigned a paragraph to be written for homework. It should comment on appeasement and also weigh the relative strengths of the "action" vs. "inaction" arguments regarding the cause of the war.
