We invite educators and students to use this centennial observation as a once-in-a-century teaching/learning opportunity!

Available resources include:
  • A toolkit for hosting an in-class or local commemoration
  • A resource on remembrance and commemoration featuring the WWI Centennial Commemoration's poppy program
  • A look at American patriotism through WWI propaganda posters
  • A number of lesson plans and links addressing the U.S. entry into the war
