Grade Level: 11th

Date: 10/10/2013 & 10/14/2013 Overall Goal of Lesson: The students will gain an understanding of the US annexation of Hawaii just before the start of the Spanish-American War. The students will gain an understanding of the events and major battles of the Spanish-American War; including the US acquisition of the former Spanish colonies of Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines through the 1898 Treaty of Paris. Students will gain a better understanding of the major battles of the Spanish-American War, including the naval Battle of Manila Bay (which destroyed the Spanish fleet in the Pacific), the Battle of San Juan Hill (in which Teddy Roosevelts Rough Riders won fame), and the naval Battle of Santiago Bay(which crippled Spains effective Atlantic naval power). The lesson will explain important outcomes including: How Cuba became an independent country, how the Philippines became a US territory (later to become independent after WWII); and generally how the US first established its roots of global military influence, which later expanded and still influence the world today. Instructional Objectives: Students will gain an understanding of how the US used its influence and power to annex Hawaii in the late-1800s. The students will gain an understanding of the major battles of the Spanish-American War and their outcomes. The lesson will lightly touch on the Philippine-American War, which occurred after nationalist militant groups in the Philippines refused to accept the USs annexation of the region granted by the 1898 Treaty of Paris.
