Complete the following steps to develop your essay:
Choose one U.S. intervention from 18901914 and one from 19141920. Gather details and compare facts as you begin your research.
From your research findings, choose one visual or print primary source that addresses controversy or differences of opinion regarding these U.S. interventions. Appropriate visual primary sources include posters, political cartoons, paintings, film clips, and propaganda.
From your research findings, choose two appropriate scholarly sources. Your sources may include print primary sources, which is an account, item, or data generated in the historical period by a participant or witness. Print primary sources also include parts of speeches, debates, and newspaper editorials.
Critically analyze your research and draw conclusions from the comparison and the range of opinion reflected. Prepare a thesis statement. Your thesis statement should offer your reader your specific insight into the outcomes and perspectives up to 1920 based on the data you considered. Use the following guidelines to help decide on your thesis statement:
Ensure that your thesis is about the period 18901920 only.
Ask yourself what the comparison suggests about changes in the nature and scope of U.S. interventions in this period. Ask yourself whether those interventions resulted in control, economic advantage, democratization, and/or liberation, partially, wholly, or not at all by 1920.
