So WHAT’S THE WHOLE POINT? Here’s what you should know after studying this unit!
Essential Question: What is the impact of imperialism upon the world?
1. I can list the political and economic motivations behind imperialism in Japan and in Europe in their quest to dominate Asia (China, Taiwan, and Korea) and Africa.
2. I can compare and contrast the effects that direct and indirect rule had upon the spread of Western values in the colonies.
3. I can present how the consequences of imperialism were viewed differently by the colonizers and the colonized.
