Product Description
Students read about America's role in helping Greece and Turkey recover and rebuild after World War 2 (WWII, WW2) as per the Truman Doctrine, define a variety of terms, write summaries from selections of the text, and respond 25 questions and creative tasks. The answers are included where appropriate and this would work for a sub!

Sample questions include:
--Why did Greece ask America for assistance and why was that assistance deemed imperative?
--Identify the show of good faith put forth by the Greek Government, implying that Western efforts wouldn't be squandered.
--What parallel was drawn between Greece’s desires and the United States, which Truman hoped would push Americans to sympathize with Greeks?
--What were the “implications involved” for America should it commit to this assistance and why did Truman make a point of acknowledging them?
--How was the security of the United States affected by what happens in countries such as Greece and Turkey?
--Compare and contrast the ways of life Truman said people are presented with.
--How did Truman justify requesting the authorization of such a large financial commitment?
--Would this have persuaded you to vote in favor of the financial aid and commitment to Greece and Turkey, why or why not? Cite from the text to support your answer, whether it is yes or no.
