THIS JUST IN: You work for a national radio broadcasting company, and it is your job to create the typed broadcast for the evening news, recapping the experiences of Americans from before World War I (WWI) as well as after the war.
For your story to be valid and accepted by a wide audience, it must include the home-front experiences of many groups; to help with your story, choose at least three topics below to discuss in your broadcast.
- What changed because of the movement from isolationism to expansionism?
- How did the Roosevelt Corollary change America’s role in the world?
- Assess the relevance of people’s concerns about the war’s impact on the international community.
- Assess the war’s economic impact, including the expansion of factories due to wartime production.
- What domestic and international figures played key roles in the war?
- How is the United States in the post-war era positioned to become a superpower?
With any good news story, you must utilize multiple sources. Your story must be a minimum of two pages in length. A minimum of two reputable sources must be used, cited, and referenced, one of which must come from the CSU Online Library. This means you will need to find at least one additional source on your own, and it cannot be the content provided in this course (i.e., unit lessons or U.S. History resource). Inappropriate resources, or failure to use at least one resource available in the CSU Online Library, can lead to deductions.
