World History 1/30

In Class - Continue Group Work of Rudyard Kipling's poem "The White Man's Burden." Class discussion on the different interpretations of the poem. Overall, this could be viewed from either the anti-imperialist point of view of pro-imperialist point of view. It all depends on the specific examples from the poem to support your argument. Turn in answers to two questions.

Homework: Primary sources: "A Defense of Imperialism" and "First Doubts in My Imperialist Soul." Answers the questions from each source. This is due on Tuesday, February 3.
