The 7-9 grade curriculum guide, one of a series of Quinmester courses arranged in a similar format, focuses on the roots and results of manifest destiny which are observable in the national character of American life and in our foreign policy conduct. Differing viewpoints of the American Indian and Europeans as well as the traditional views of the U.S. toward westward expansion are examined. Nine units trace the physical growth of the U.S.; evaluate the implications of manifest destiny; review the positions of exponents of manifest destiny and anti-expansionists; and describe reasons and difficulties of expansionism and its effect on the American character, economic development of the U. S., and on contemporary U. S. policies. Broad goals, a course content, an activity, and material sections are included. (SJM)
