This guide is based on fourteen short films that cover the period of time ranging from the pre-war era to the founding of the United Nations. It includes activities to help students develop their critical thinking and use multiple sources to gain a deeper and more nuanced understanding of history. The guide includes multiple primary sources ranging from political cartoons to fireside chats, historic speeches, maps, telegrams, and photographs.
