Generally characterize the outcome of the first two-and-a-half years of the war.  What was U.S. policy toward Europe during this period? Why did the U.S. change its policy? With which major powers did the U.S. eventually ally itself? Would you describe President Woodrow Wilson’s war goals as mainly successes or failures?  Did the U. S. benefit from its intervention?  

2. Depression and New Deal, 1929-1940s.    Explain why the U.S. economy was at such a low point when Franklin D. Roosevelt became President in 1933. Describe the Roosevelt Administration’s response to the Depression. Some analysts have claimed there were two New Deals. What differences do they point out? What sparked the "Second New Deal?" Give your brief assessment of the New Deal’s long-range impact on American society.

3.  An Overview of U. S. Foreign Policy, 1901-1941.  Describe and summarize U. S. foreign policy from the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt to the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt.  What three major periods does your instructor identify during this era?  What is the basis for that classification?  

4.  World War II, 1939-1945.  Examine the impact of World War II on these four civilian populations:  African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, American women and European Jews.  This question may be successfully answered based only on your reading assignment in the textbook.

7. How and why was significant civil rights and other social legislation enacted during the mid-1960s? What was the short-term and long-term significance of that legislation? What does that era teach us about change in America?
