In this assignment, you will complete the following steps:
  1. Create: Create an outline with a thesis and supporting evidence for your point of view: The United States should or should not have helped Germany recover from World War II.
  2. Write: Write a five-paragraph argumentative essay based on your outline.
This section is worth 10 points. See the scoring rubric below for more details on how you will be graded.
Now that you have reviewed the causes and effects of both world wars, create an outline for an argumentative essay on whether the United States should have helped Germany recover from World War II. You will need to support your argument with at least three pieces of evidence to explain why. Use the historical facts that you have learned in this activity and in past lessons. You may also want to use the following resources:
The outline will help you organize and focus your essay. To make an outline, number the main topics with Roman numerals and the supporting subtopics with capital letters. Details that support a subtopic are numbered 1, 2, 3, and so forth.
Generally, you should never have just one topic, subtopic, or supporting detail; if you have one, you should have at least a second. You may use short phrases or whole sentences but not both in the same outline. Use the outline template below. Notice that it begins with a thesis statement, which is a sentence that sums up your topic and opinion. Think of this sentence as an answer to a question. In this instance, your thesis statement should be the one-sentence answer to the question: "Should the United States have helped Germany following World War II?"
As you form your opinion, consider these questions:
  • How did World War I start?
  • What happened to Germany at the end of World War I?
  • What was life like in Germany after World War I?
  • How and why was Hitler able to take power in Germany?
  • Is there a connection between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II?
  • How did World War II begin?
  • What were the effects of World War II?
  • What was Germany like at the end of World War II?
  • How did the future of Europe look at the end of World War II?
  • What was the Soviet Union's position at the end of World War II?
