This resource explores what Woodrow Wilson’s 14 points were and how each point could be categorised e.g. economic, military, etc. This provides students with a strong understanding of the armistice terms that Germany agreed to. A clear contrast can be drawn with the ‘wants’ of Clemenceau and Loyd George. It helps to support to understand why the students felt disgruntled about the terms of the Treaty of Versailles.
What do the Big Three want from the Treaty of Versailles?
Two sheets of background information on their aims and intentions, with activities included.
A character profile sheet to be completed for each of the three leaders.
This resource includes a thinking starter, and a short introduction. There are five PowerPoints sharing the different perspectives of those involved. Two PP’s are from the perspective of the US officers (one is differentiated). Two PP’s are from the perspective of the US soldiers (one is differentiated). One PP is from the perspective of the Vietnamese. The final PP, the sixth , is for the Jury group. Each group will present and decide how far those whose perspective they represent is responsible for the massacre. The jury will listen and make the decision on who is responsible for the massacre and how far they are responsible for the massacre.
This is a PowerPoint with approximately 30 slides. Many of the slides are picture based and present a visual image to support an understanding of the origins of the conflict and why the USA became involved in Vietnam.
