Weekly Reflection, 4/27

What was the most interesting thing you learned from your studies this week?

The most interesting thing I learned this week is how the United States and the Soviet Union emerged from World War II as two superpowers with extremely different political and economic systems, leading to one of the longest wars in history, the Cold War.

How might you apply something you learned this week to your life today?
After World War II, China became a communist nation and Korea was solit into a communist north and a democratic south, which led to the Korean War. I’ve realized that many of the tensions that existed with China and Korea after World War II are similar to the ongoing tensions that continue to involve the United States today.

What would you like to learn more about? Why might you research more on your own?

I’d like to learn more about the role of the CIA in the Cold War and how the U.S. benefited from the newly developed agency.

Write one detailed question about something you have studied this week that you would like an answer to:

What factors led to the Communist takeover in China?
