Appeasement
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Few geo-political events have resonated through the past 70 years like Neville Chamberlain?s decision to pursue the policy of appeasement in reaction to German aggression leading up to the Second World War. Leaders throughout the world have invoked appeasement to justify military action ever since. The decisions that went into Chamberlain?s policy, however, were far from straightforward. Historians have continually debated and reinterpreted these events. In this lesson, students address the issue of appeasement and explore and weigh evidence against and in favor of the policy.

Birth of a Colony: Act III (The Roanoke Voyages, 1584?1590)
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Birth of a Colony explores the history of North Carolina from the time of European exploration through the Tuscarora War. Presented in five acts, the video combines primary sources and expert commentary to bring this period of our history to life. Act III of Birth of a Colony presents the story of England?s attempts to settle in the New World. Queen Elizabeth enlisted Sir Walter Raleigh to launch an expedition ?to inhabit and possess? any lands not already claimed by Spain or France. This was part of the global power struggle between Catholic Spain and Protestant England. Queen Elizabeth believed that if England could get a foothold in America, it would be possible to cut off the flow of gold, silver, and sugar that fueled Spain?s domination and threatened England?s security. This teacher's guide contains 2 SS lessons plans: The England of the Roanoke Colonies; The Art of John White. Additional suggested resources are also included. There are optional visual arts extension activities as well. The Birth of a Colony video can be accessed at the following link: http://video.unctv.org/video/2149619983/
