Like the Depression, WWII fundamentally changed America. This war affected every single person in some way. Many Americans did not want to get involved in what they believed was another European war (as the “America First” speech from Lindbergh shows) but the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, changed that. This war was the war to stop fascist aggression, a terrible and destructive ideology that engulfed Europe and plunged the world into war. Review the following documents. What do these sources tell us about the effects the war had on the United States?

Follow the example of an evaluation posted in Canvas and refer to the checklist of the requirements as you write up your evaluation. There is no specific word count, rather, focus on analyzing each source and questions with specific details and facts according to the directions.
As you begin this assignment, you should consider time management. Pace your work out over the module period and follow a schedule you set for yourself. For example:
1. Read the assigned textbook section or other materials for context and take notes. Taking notes will help you write up your final draft.
2. Review each source assigned and take notes (like brief summaries of each to help you organize your thoughts).
3. Think about the question(s) to answer and research/review the assigned source materials for evidence.
4. Review the example of an evaluation.
5. Start writing a draft. Write something. Anything. Just get something on paper to start, however humble.
6. Sleep on it. Come back to your work later and edit.
7. Write a full draft, sleep on it again, and have someone read it for you, ask them to offer suggestions.
8. Check again for misspellings, grammar, have you quoted each source and not mistakenly plagiarized materials?
9. Clean up/edit, rewrite the draft and submit the final evaluation for grading.
