If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
Power Point #1 - Imperialism – America’s Growing Overseas Empire contains 24 editable slides.
Imperialism is a nice tidy word for a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force: The United States had a long tradition of territorial expansion and was eager to expand more. Gains of adjacent territory in the 19th century, such as the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, the areas won from Mexico in 1848, and U.S. expansion across the continent, all enhanced American stature.
In the 1890s, several motives combined to build pressure for expansion overseas. Business leaders wanted overseas markets. Products basic to the American economy—including cotton, wheat, iron, steel, and agricultural equipment—already depended heavily on foreign sales.
Business leaders feared that if the United States failed to gain new markets abroad, other nations would claim them, and these markets would be lost to U.S. enterprise.

Power Point #2 – The Spanish-American War contains 14 editable slides.
The Spanish-American War was a conflict between the United States and Spain that ended Spanish colonial rule in the Americas and resulted in U.S. acquisition of territories in the western Pacific and Latin America.
The Spanish-American War was an important turning point in the history of both antagonists. Spain’s defeat decisively turned the nation’s attention away from its overseas colonial adventures and inward upon its domestic needs, a process that led to both a cultural and a literary renaissance and two decades of much-needed economic development in Spain.
The victorious United States, on the other hand, emerged from the war a world power with far-flung overseas possessions and a new stake in international politics that would soon lead it to play a determining role in the affairs of Europe.
