Students will also deepen their understanding of U.S. Imperialism by reading and annotating an article on the topic. TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THIS LESSON: Purchase of Alaska, Annexation of Hawaii, Acquisition of Guam, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Cuba following the Spanish American War, Open Door Policy, Trade with Japan (Matthew Perry), and MORE.....All Materials are INCLUDED in this packet!
