This is a chart which can easily be added to a lecture Powerpoint or used as a transparency. Policies detailed include Monroe, Teller, Platt, Open Door Policy, Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, Gunboat, and Dollar Diplomacy.
For an interactive student scavenger hunt, print class sets of the charts, cut the information boxes below the columns (Provisions, Countries Involved, and Results) apart like puzzle pieces. Save another copy of the chart maintaining only the column headings and the diplomacies; print. Students can then place the puzzle pieces as a group cooperative activity.
