U.S. Home Front During WWII

Friday February 11, 2011

Today we are covering the United States Home Front during World War II. The focus of this lesson is on how ordinary Americans (who weren’t serving in the military) contributed to the War and helped us achieve victory. We will also briefly cover how Japanese-Americans were treated in the U.S. during the War–a sad part of our history.

Here are the files for today’s class:

BREAKING NEWS: Hosni Mubarak has stepped down as the President of Egypt and is handing control of the country to the Egyptian military. Now the issue is how long will the military maintain power, how will they rule, what process will be instituted to select the new Egyptian government, who will be chosen to fill those offices and what will be their position towards the United States and the state of Israel? Try to stay informed–revolutions don’t happen every day and this is history in the making that could have huge effects on the region and the world in the years to come. Read more about Mubarak’s resignation here.
