What caused WWII? Objectives: Explain how the causes of WWII led to the start of the conflict. Introduction Directions: Read through the scenario below and answer the questions that follow. On the first day of school, all the students signed a classroom contract promising to respect one another and resolve conflicts without fighting. If fighting occurs, the contract stated that the principal would call the family for a conference and there would be further consequences. Greg is a 10th grader who is still mad about last year because he felt like he was always blamed for starting problems and, as a result, he wasn’t allowed to attend any of the school field trips or go to school dances. Greg didn’t want to sign the contract, but he did anyway. In the second month of school, Greg got into a fight with Jeremiah, Jacob and Craig. Jeremiah, Jacob and Craig ended up with bloody noses. After the fight, the principal did not call Greg’s parents and there were no additional consequences. Two weeks later, Greg got into a fight with Calvin, and Greg broke Calvin’s arm. Again, after the fight, the principal did not call Greg’s parents and there were no additional consequences. Only a week later, Greg got into a fight with Justin and Michael in the lunchroom leading to a large brawl involving half the school. After the lunchroom brawl, the principal threatened to call home and Greg laughed in her face. Two days later, Greg started a fight in front of the school and a window was broken that cost the school thousands of dollars to replace. 1. Why didn’t Greg want to sign the contract? 1
