US HISTORY 3-9-20

WAR ON THE HOME FRONT

As you can imagine, to win a war overseas took many sacrifices at home. 
World War II had a huge impact on America and those that did not leave the country to fight. 
America had to organize a system to produce and transport the supplies so important to winning the war.  These efforts and sacrifices are considered monumental and helped America win the war.  


To describe the impact these efforts had on American society,
I wanted to share a great article with you.  As you read it, keep in mind that your purpose is to analyze
the changes in American life brought about by U.S. participation in World War II. 
When you are done reading, complete the supporting assignment.


https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wkgdDt7tIxZzaUMv2I89GLjOjHgW5QJbF4eNq7Zo2bM/edit




Now that you have read the article, let’s try to make some sense of our purpose. 
When you analyze the changes in American life brought about by U.S. participation in World War II,
there are four very specific topics to consider:


  • Mobilization of economic, military, and social resources
  • Role of women and minorities in the war effort
  • Role of the home front in supporting the war effort (e.g., rationing, work hours, taxes)
  • Internment of Japanese-Americans


This assignment asks you to re-visit the article and find specific information that supports a specific topic.  Use the topic prompts and the space provided below to get the job done.  


Topic #1 -  Mobilization of economic, military, and social resources
Example:  the cost-plus-a-fixed-fee system provided an incentive for business
to participate in the war effort
