Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to better understand American imperialism around the turn of the twentieth century, most especially fighting the insurrection in the Philippines.
First, read US History, Chapter 22.
Second, go to AMERICAN HISTORY TELLERS wherever you get podcasts [Apple podcasts, Spotify, etc.] to listen to the first episode on the Philippine insurrection [“Philippine-American War: Into the Jaws of the Dragon”]. Here are some helpful links: https://airship.fm/philippine-american-war-into-the-jaws-of-a-dragon-1/ Another link option is here: https://www.audacy.com/podcasts/american-history-tellers-22998/philippine-american-war-into-the-jaws-of-a-dragon-1-1019839020 Listen to the entire podcast, and take some notes to make writing your post easy.
Third, create an original discussion post in which you share key history you learned or found most interesting in a minimum of 300 substantive words that do NOT include any personal commentary about whether you liked the podcast or no. You may absolutely include that, share any opinions you like as much as you like, but you must have a minimum of 300 words of relevant, substantive historical content from the podcast, and not just from the very beginning.????
