Artists Document World War I

Drawings may be worth even more than a thousand words. Curious scholars query an artist's rendering of troops leaving a ship after they have arrived in Europe to fight in World War I. By zooming in and looking at the entire piece, class members ponder the details of the work. Discussion questions guide their thinking, with responses emailed to the teacher or shared aloud.
