    Personally I think something to do with immigration is very likely to come up in exam now. As well, as Dollar Diplomacy or Open Door Policy. Maybe Red Scare or Prohibition too.

    Maybe someone anyone has a copy of the January 2013 paper/can remember the questions???

    Teacher only printed out question 1 for our class;

    Explain why the usa went to war against spain in 1898? 12marks

    How important was theodore roosevelt in influencing US foreign policy in the years 1900 to 1920? 24marks

    If anyone knew questions 2 and 3 it would be much appreciate
    ... Predictions personally think for question 1 domestic policy is most likely to come up as previous jan 2013 (see above) and june 2012 question 1 both 12+24marks were about foreign policy so maybe something on populism or progessivism (hasn't been on since 09) big businesses or maybe expansionism, imperialism. Ww2 second new deal, atomic bombs why us used them (the three explination theories put forward by historians) ect..

    Could they ask about McKinley?
    Have you studied Woodrow Wilson policies?
    Can the open door policy come up as a 12 mark?

    Not really. Struggling with 1890-1920. Find 1920-9 the easiest and then the New Deal and WWII. You?
