    Now You Will Learn: The fear of communism took root in America in the 1920's following World War I.  In addition, following World War II, a renewed fear of communism emerged in the United States as Russia gaining a foothold in Europe and Asia.  The United States vowed to stop the spread of communism.  This idea of containment cast the United States and Russia into a epic power struggle.  This power struggle became known as the Cold War.  The Cold War led to war in Korea and Vietnam and fueled tensions between the United States and China.

    Topic:  War World II (1939-1945)

    HOT Question: What factors led to WWII?          

    Standards:  

    8.H.2.1 - Military conflicts impacted the development of NC and the US.

    8.E.1.1 - Conflict leds to periods of economic decline and growth.

    Classroom:  Chapter 21, Section 1- Steps to War

                        Chapter 21, Section 2 - War in Europe and Africa 

                        Chapter 21, Section 3 - War in the Pacific ( Bataan Death March, Battle at Midway, Iwo Jima & Okinawa, Manhattan Project, Hiroshima)

     We will also be covering the Holocaust & Japanese Internment Camps in America

    Previously You Learned:   The 1920s was referred to as the "bloodless revolution" because it brought about economic, social, and political change.  Although the economy was booming, there was an undercurrent of economic issues that would soon pull the nation under and leave it drowning a sea of debt.  In the mid-west, weather conditions, coupled with over farming, were generating the perfect storm for the dust bowl.   After years of plowing, the prairie grass that had held the soil together and in place was replaced with a top layer of dirt.   During World War I, farmers were encouraged to grow food to help supply domestic and foreign military allies, while Americans were encouraged to conserve and grow their own gardens.  Crop production during World War I meant many farmers were making money, which further stimulated the use of advanced farming techniques to generate more crops.  Many farmers had taken out loans during WWI to purchase additional land, farming equipment, seeds, and fertilizer.  Farmers were positively reinforced to produce more crops, this eventually leads to a surplus of crops.  At the same time, a weather system was brewing in the mid-west.  This particular type of weather system resulted in little rain and created back drafts of wind.  Over farming, no rain, and wind backdrafts led to the dust the bowl.  At about the same time, the demand for crops fell. Farmers could not pay back their loans. Meanwhile, in the cities and surrounding rural areas, the debts that were generated during the 1920s were coming due.  However, just like farming, the manufacturing and industry had started to implode.  The demand for products began to decrease.  Companies began to lay off workers.  Most people did not make enough money to pay for their loans, even with a job.  As the demand for goods fell, the prices of stocks fell.  People began to sell their stocks.  Meanwhile, as the dust bowl continued to brew and sweep across the nation, it also blew farmers to the east and west coast in search of jobs.  There were many factors which led to the great depression.  Unfortunately, no one could see the undercurrent that was tugging at their heels.

    Now You Will Learn: Although the Unites States had adopted the idea of isolationism and wanted to remain neutral, they wer already intwined in global affairs.  Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor pushed the United States into the war.  Although European coutnries tired to avoid war with the policy of appeasement, Germany continued to implment aggressive tactics.  World War II took placein Europe, Africa, and in the Pacific.  Totaltarian dictators would stop at nothing to ruthlessly crush all that opposed them.
