PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In the Spanish American War Primary Source Packet students may analyze two historical questions:
- Explosion of the Maine - Which account do you find more believable?
- Why did the US invade Cuba?

Students learn about the Spanish American War, key players and events, Yellow Journalism, Cause/Effect, and learn historical skills such as sourcing, corroboration, and analysis. Each packet takes a class period (45 - 60 minutes) so I tend to give my students the option of which historical question to investigate which adds an element of excitement with the choice. It also provokes great dialogue and historical curiosity!

Includes:
- Introductory PPT
- Explosion of the Maine Packet: Readings & Graphic Organizer
- US Invades Cuba Packet: Readings & Graphic Organizer

*These lessons were adapted from Stanford Reading Like A Historian but modified for easier use.
