Discussion #6: Did America really practice isolation and neutrality during WWI?
In 1914 Woodrow Wilson proclaimed U.S. neutrality, and asked the American people to remain “impartial in thought as well as deed.” At the end of the war, some members of the government pushed to expand American influence but to also remain free of any commitments, a policy its critics referred to as isolationism.
In order to prepare for this discussion forum:
Review and identify the relevant sections of Chapter 23 that support your discussion. You might also find some of the content covered in Chapter 21 relevant to this discussion.
Read Roosevelt’s Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine
Read Wilson’s Joint Address to Congress leading to the declaration of WWI
Read the transcript of Wilson’s 14 Points
After you have completed your readings post a response to only ONE of the following questions.
In your opinion, was U.S. policy in Asia and Latin America between from late nineteenth century to 1914 truly isolationist? Discuss and support your response.
In your opinion, did America remain neutral in “thought and deed” from 1914 to 1917? Discuss and support your response.

“Utilitarianism” by John Stuart Mill (starting on page 111)

Thus far, you have learned how historical contexts, perspectives, and biases influence the interpretation and “telling” of historical narratives. For this discussion, reflect on what you have learned about your research question and the historical event and current event you chose. To ensure an interesting discussion, you are encouraged to think creatively about your initial posts and extend the points made by your peers. It is also important to review the module resources and read the prompts in their entirety before participating in the discussion. You should include examples and other supporting evidence from the module resources in your posts.
Discussing challenges that face our world often means investigating opinions and ideas different from your own. Remember to remain thoughtful and respectful towards your peers and instructor in your discussion post and replies.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
Discuss the brainstorming process you used to identify bias in your primary and secondary sources. How did you do it? Describe the strategies that were successful for you.
Consider the challenges you encountered identifying the narratives about your historical event. What methods did you use to identify the absent voices in the historical narratives?
What perspectives do you think are missing from the narrative about your historical event?
Be sure to cite evidence from your sources to justify your points.
Over the past few weeks, you have examined how context, perspective, and bias impact what we know about history and how we talk about it. You also started to make connections between your research question, historical event, and current event. In this activity, you will build upon that work to consider the historical roots of your current event and what the narratives would be like if told from a different perspective.
Use the provided Module Five Activity Template: Historical Interpretations Word Document to complete this activity. First, you will reflect on the process of researching the subject of your historical research question and its connection to your current event. You will then consider the impact of bias on our existing knowledge. Finally, you will address how the narratives about your historical and current events would change if told from alternative viewpoints.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Describe how exploring your research question improved your understanding of the historical roots of your current event.
How did learning more about the subject of your research question help you identify events from the past that contributed or led up to your current event?
Explain how biased perspectives influence what is known about both your historical and current events.
Support your points with relevant course resources.
Propose how the narrative about your historical event might change if it were told from a missing perspective.
Refer to the missing perspective you identified in this week’s discussion. How might this point of view change the story about your historical event? For example, would the narrative focus on different details, or would those details be interpreted differently?
Propose how the narrative about your current event might change if it were told from a missing perspective.
Expand on the missing perspective from criteria three and apply it to your current event. How might your current event be understood differently by examining it from that perspective?
Guidelines for Submission
Submit the Module Two Activity Template: Primary and Secondary Sources. While references are not required, any sources used should be cited according to APA style if you reference them in your responses. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations
See the detailed Historical Reflection directions for information about requirements and scoring rubric. For Part I, identify and explain three “gold nuggets” from this week’s historical sources. Do not include evidence from additional sites and resources not included in this week’s resources. For Part II, prepare a three-paragraph response to this key question:
Did women who participated in the Civil War do more to maintain standard gender expectations or did they undermine standard gender expectations? (Helpful tip: Consider the Cult of Domesticity from Chapter 4 for insights into the “standard gender expectations” for women.)
Support your interpretation with specific evidence from this week’s historical sources. Do not include evidence from additional sites and resources not included in this week’s resources. Keep quoted content to less than 20% of your response. Prepare a minimum of three paragraphs responding to this question. (Keep in mind that paragraphs generally consist of five to seven sentences).
Submit your Historical Reflection by Monday. (Although there is a 24-hour grace period for submitting your reflection, please only use this for unexpected emergencies).
Discussion Topic: The three leaders who shaped the world from the late 1920’s tp 1945. Joseph Stalin (1879-1953) emerged as the Soviet Union’s leader following the 1924 death of Lenin (1870-1924). Adolph Hitler (1889-1945) took full advantage of German degradation following World War I. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945) overcame the obstacles polio posed and became the longest-serving American President.
Compare and contrast these three leaders. How did these individuals affect the world? Why were these men able to rise to power, and maintain their leadership? Finally, interpret why each of these leaders increased the power of government?
A minimum of 250 words must contain at least (2) professional references properly cited in the current APA format.
