WWII Report Instructions

You will be researching one year during the time in which World War II was being fought (1939-1945).  Research the major events of that year and which side appeared to be advancing most during that year.  Make sure you look for how Utah was affected by the war's events that year.  Prepare a short presentation for the class about that year or write a paper of approximately 200 words describing your findings and explaining Utah’s role.   Include at least one picture and one quote from a primary source (written or taken in that year) in your report. If you choose to write the paper you may pick and of the years the war was going on. If you choose to do the presentation, make sure to focus on the year you are assigned in class.
