Discussion: Purpose of Monroe Doctrine From the U.S. perspective.why did they pass the Monroe Doctrine? According to the U.S., the purpose of the Monroe Doctrine was to protect Latin America from Europe, encourage the spread of democracy, and create a homogenous America. In your opinion, was this accomplished? Is intervention using the Monroe Doctrine different/ similar than European intervention. Explain!

Review: The Monroe Doctrine Background of President Monroe Washington's Minister to France Jefferson appointed Monroe to negotiate the purchase of the entire Louisiana Territory Under Madison, he served as Secretary

of State and Secretary of War. Monroe brought a vision of an expanded America to his presidencya vision that helped facilitate the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine influenced foreign relations for the next several decades. The Monroe Doctrine December 2, 1823

Efforts by European nations to colonize land or interfere with states in North or South America would be viewed as acts of aggression, requiring U.S. intervention. Also stated that the United States would neither interfere with existing European colonies nor meddle in the internal concerns of European countries. The Doctrine was issued at a time

when nearly all Latin American Monroe Doctrines Usage Against Against Russias expansion into NW U.S. Spanish/English interest in the Yucatan Peninsula Warn Spain to stay out of Dominican Republic Against the involvement of France in Mexico Against European interest to build the

Panama Canal Against British involvement in disputes between Venezuela and British Guiana Military intervention in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba and Puerto Rico Note Check: Monroe Doctrine Review your partners notes, and consider the following: Are their notes summarized?

Studying History Using Perspective In IB History, it is extremely important to look at events from multiple perspectives. The next two lessons will focus on

how countries around the world teach the Monroe Doctrine. Today, you will read excerpts from the book History Lessons: How Textbooks from Around the World Portray U.S. History. As you read the introduction, I would like you to annotate the section. What are annotations? Annotations are another note-taking method used in IB history to increase understanding. They are typically a note of explanation or comment added to a text. After you finish, we will participate in a discussion activity regarding this reading so be ready to discuss!

Sample Annotations: International Response to Monroe Doctrine Because the U.S. lacked both a credible navy and army at the time, the doctrine was largely disregarded internationally. Prince Metternich of Austria was angered by the statement, and wrote privately that the doctrine was a "new act of revolt" by the U.S. The doctrine, however, was met with unspoken British approval. They enforced it tactically as part of the wider Pax Britannica, which included enforcement of the neutrality of the seas. Fast-growing British industry sought markets for its manufactured goods, and, if the newly independent Latin American states became

Spanish colonies again, British access to these markets would be cut off by Spanish policy. Now its your turn! Annotate the introduction section of the packet. Do not move ahead! Discussion Activity
