The following are possible Short Answer Questions; your answers MUST be based on class material, NOT the textbook!

1. Franklin Roosevelt was one of the most significant figures in 20th Century US History. Discuss his presidency up through the start of
World War II. How was he different from previous presidents (and I do not mean in terms of his health)? What were the most significant
developments of this part of his presidency and how did he react to them?

2. Foreign Policy was not as obviously important in
the US between 1920 and 1941, yet several important things took place.  Discuss at
least two significant foreign policy developments during this period - how did they affect the United States' position in the world and why
were they so important?

3. Economic issues shaped much of American life in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Discuss the rise and fall of the economy during this period.
What were the most significant developments and how did they affect the nation?
