“The War to End All Wars”: Teaching the First World War in Schools
Please join Pioneer Institute, the United States World War One Centennial Commission, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the Northeast Regional Conference on the Social Studies, and other co-sponsors, at a forum with award-winning historians and history teachers marking the 100th anniversary of U.S. entry into the First World War.
America’s first engagement as a major global actor, the rise of German militarism and the Soviet Union, and the geographic boundaries of the Middle East, are only some of the reasons why World War I is often considered the most influential event of the 20th century. Learn why we have a duty to ensure students know about our shared past.
When: Tuesday April 4, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM EDT
Where: Edward M. Kennedy Institute, 210 Morrissey Boulevard, Boston, MA 02125
