Students analyze 16 documents, answer 16 historical context questions, complete a sorting chart, and write a DBQ essay to review Imperialism for US History. (US Imperialism). There are 10 essay prompts for students to choose from (one allows for the class or teacher to make one of their own). The answers are included where appropriate and the initial analysis part would be great for a sub! ***Some of the sourcing is generalized so that students have to place it in the historical context/event themselves.***
Sample questions include:
--What aspect of imperialism is referenced in Document 2?
--Describe the historical context of Document 4.
--How does the Anti-Imperialist League make their case in Document 8?
--What motive for imperialism does Beveridge reference?
--Summarize Document 11 in your own words to demonstrate understanding.
--Does Bryan, in Document 15, support imperialism or not and why?
