Here are the steps for being successful.

1. Choose a(n) topic/event/person leading up to WWI.

2. Find a picture and quote that relates to your topic/event/person.

3. Analyze the picture and quote and EXPLAIN how your topic/event/person are related!!! BE CLEVER, find important things that are in the picture and quote that could be used to get a better understanding of the place and time the picture and quote were at.

Please number your response as shown below.

1. Type your topic/event here. Then provide a summary. Now post a link where someone can learn more about the topic/event.

2. Copy and paste the the picture and quote…quote above picture. Now post a link

where someone can find the quote and picture.

3. Now write your analysis. Find important details in the picture that could help identify how your quote relates. Try to find poetic elements it the picture…if you can.


1. My topic is on the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. He was 51 when he when he and his wife were shot and killed by Gavrilo Princip. This is said to be the started WWI.

2. "Sophie dear, Sophie dear, don't die! Stay alive for our children."

3. In this picture it shows Archduke Franz Ferdinand arriving in Sarajevo. If you noticed there is military staff surrounding him. This might be because they are protecting him… but from what? Also the atmosphere is dusty and hard to see through. This could help cover and hide some unwelcoming people. In Sarajevo there was a group called The Black Hand that wanted to kill the Archduke. Their three attempts had failed, which was to bomb the train, so another terrorist named Gavrilo Princip stood up and shot two bullets as the train was riding by. The first bullet hit Ferdinand’s pregnant wife who died instantly and the other hit Ferdinand in the neck. Franz Ferdinand’s final words were, "Sophie dear, Sophie dear, don't die! Stay alive for our children."
