PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

U.S. Imperialism--what were the motives? In this lesson, students first look at examples and nonexamples of imperialism to ensure that they understand the concept. Next, they analyze primary sources to construct an understanding of why the U.S. decided to pursue a policy of imperialism at the turn of the 20th century. Students also read arguments from anti-imperialists before deciding for themselves whose arguments they find more persuasive. Finally, students demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge by using the primary sources to write a two-voice poem comparing and contrasting the beliefs of imperialists and anti-imperialists.
This lesson includes two versions of the primary sources--one for more advanced students, and a modified version for students who need extra guidance.
Includes: powerpoint for concept formation, two version of primary sources, powerpoint to review key concepts, and two-voice poem template.
