Who do you think is imperializing today, and how might that affect the U.S.?
This week we’ll be discussing Imperialism and some of the factors that led us to our empire phase. What do you think those were? Who do you think is imperializing today, and how might that affect the U.S.?
We’re also looking at an amazing group of people, known as the Progressive. You will no doubt feel a keen affinity for them, as you are all Progressives in your own way. Every one of you can make a big difference in making the world a better place, just as the Progressives of a century ago did, whether they realized it or not. As you read this chapter, hopefully you will be inspired at how normal people just like you can make such big differences!
Finally, we take a look at The Great War, otherwise known as WWI. Was it really necessary? Who was ultimately responsible, and why on earth did we wait so long to help our allies?
Remember, you need a nice, fat, paragraph for each answer! It is also good if you respond to each other, so that this is a discussion as well as an assignment. 🙂
