To understand the causes of WW1, it is important to look further back in History. In this class, students will focus on Kaiser Wilhelm and the problems he faced as the last Emperor of Germany. These issues are vital to explore for students to understand how these issues forced a growing discontent in Germany, which will then allow students to lead to the further question of how these issues connected to World War I. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 who are studying Germany.
