Students came in having watched the video on the Spanish-American War. After checking their video guides and passing out a few things to the students I went over the Web Diagram of the Spanish-American War. We had a lengthy discussion about US expansion prior to the war.
When we finished the web diagram the students completed four multiple-choice questions about the US territorial acquisitions. For the rest of the class the students worked on a short answer question about reasons for US overseas expansion.
HW for tomorrow: Spanish-American War as a Turning Point V.G.
Have a great night!
