Today's focus was imperialism once again, as we began the day with a DocBlock analysis over Alfred Mahan's Sea Power in World History, a document with serious historical implication in the expansion of America's overseas empire during the late 1800's and early 1900's. We followed this with an extended look at the Philippine War, specifically, the reasons for the brutalities exercised in that war. We finished the day by looking at a set of documents representing the debate between imperialists and anti imperialists during that time period.
Tomorrow is your scored discussion over the topics covered the past few days. Make sure you have your pre-write completed for the Zinn chapter that is the main document for the discussion.
