American History Homework Eleven Answers - Student Fifteen
1. In learning history we see mistakes that people made and some of the good things they did. In learning some of their mistakes we know the consequences and will try not to do what some people have done. An example would be when we dropped the atomic bombs on Japan. We now know how powerful the bombs are and will not try to take away so many lives. But in History many good things happened and there were many great people. We try to set as an example for ourselves. The value in learning history is to understand what people did before us and to try to imitate them.
- Good answer, though most would disagree that dropping the atomic bomb was a "mistake". We did know exactly what it would do at the time.
2. The united states was right to enter the war because the Germans and the Japanese were definitely a great evil in the world in that time. We needed to fight them because they would have attacked the U.S after conquering Europe. We should have entered the war earlier because we let japan and germany get too strong and when we entered we were fighting to very strong enemies who had a great resolve to win.
- Excellent point about why perhaps we should have entered earlier. Will use as a model.
3. I liked that The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo allowed Mexicans residing in U.S territories could become U.S citizens.
- Good use of history!
4. What I liked about the "Roaring Twenties" was that movies and jazz music started to become very popular.
5. The New Deal was a failed attempt at trying to get us out of the depression. Some of things that Roosevelt had in the new deal were good but it help us out of the depression. I would have lowered taxes and opened up more government programs like FDR. Even though I think that it was an impossible task.
- Good, especially about lowering taxes. It may have been an impossible task.
6. I don't think we should have dropped the bombs on Japan because it was an incredible waste of lives and it killed many Christians.
- Excellent point.
7. The cartoon shows the ghost of Teddy Roosevelt getting angry because of the dictatorship of Franklin Roosevelt I think he is also angry because of the change of policies. I think that the date of the cartoon is 1933.
- Superb. Also see model answers.
- Perfect! 70/70. Congratulations!--Aschlafly 18:51, 6 December 2008 (EST)
