American Foreign Policy. Social Studies: 6416.58.
Siry, Larry
This American Studies elective course for 10th 11th, and 12th grade students emphasizes American foreign policy in this century. Specific examples of past policy serve as a basis for analyzing factors involved in policy making. It is hoped that a knowledge of the United States' role in the international arena will lead to a more complete understanding of the present American position in world affairs. Course goals are for the student to: 1) examine how the U.S. makes and conducts foreign policy; 2) trace the change in foreign policy from isolation to emergence; 3) discuss America's role in World War I and the war's aftermath; 4) formulate hypotheses about America's status in world affairs as evidenced by World War II and related events; and, 5) examine the cold war and generalize about the U.S.'s future in foreign affairs. In addition to a usual goals section, the guide includes: a content outline, objectives, learning activities section, and a list of supplementary textual materials. (OPH)
