Number off… get with your partner. You will work together throughout the period to create a list of evidence statements in response to the following assertion: Life on the home front was impacted (both positively and negatively) by WW2. You’ll discuss 5 topics. Think deeply about the documents and video clips. Collect your evidence statements on the provided worksheet. Take notes on your own paper.
Discuss “A Black American Ponders the War”. ◦ Why did some African Americans argue against supporting WW2? ◦ Why did some African Americans argue for supporting WW2? Video clip Video clip Drawing from the PD and the video clip, develop an “evidence statement” using evidence based on minorities on the war front to support the assertion.

Discuss the charts and map ◦ What trends do you notice? What explains them? ◦ Do you think the economy is strong or weak during the period? Why?

Rosie the Riveter lyrics (1942) All the day long, Whether rain or shine, She’s a part of the assembly line. She’s making history, Working for victory, Rosie the Riveter. Keeps a sharp lookout for sabotage, Sitting up there on the fuselage. That little girl will do more than a male will do. Rosie’s got a boyfriend, Charlie, Working overtime on the riveting machine. When they gave her a production “E,” She was a proud as she could be. There’s something true about, Red, white, and blue about Rosie the Riveter. Video Clip Felicia Ruiz, Mexican American defense industry worker “During the depression the only jobs available to young Mexican American women were limited primarily to sewing and laundry work, hotel maids, and as domestics. These jobs were both physically demanding and paid very little. When the war broke out, defense jobs were all of a sudden open to us because of the labor shortage with the men off to war. Many of us left these menial jobs into highly skilled occupations with good to excellent pay with overtime.” Discuss the Documents – Has WW2 improved/worsened their lives? How might these experiences influence these groups once the war is over?
Drawing from the PD and the video clip, develop an “evidence statement” using evidence based on opportunities and obstacles for minorities at home (women, African-Americans, and Mexican-Americans) to support the assertion.

That Damned Fence (circulated at Arizona internment camp) They’ve sunk the posts deep into the ground They’ve strung out wires all the way around. With machine gun nests just over there, And sentries and soldiers everywhere. We’re trapped like rats in a wired cage, To fret and fume with impotent rage; Yonder whispers the lure of the night, But that DAMNED FENCE assails our sight. We seek the softness of the midnight air, But that DAMNED FENCE in the floodlight glare Awakens unrest in our nocturnal quest, And mockingly laughs with vicious jest. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, We feel terrible, lonesome, and blue: That DAMNED FENCE is driving us crazy, Destroying our youth and making us lazy. Video Clip Imprisoned here for a long, long time, We know we’re punished – though we’ve committed no crime, Our thoughts are gloomy and enthusiasm damp, To be locked up in a concentration camp. Loyalty we know, and patriotism we feel, To sacrifice our upmost was our ideal, To fight for our country, and die, perhaps; But we’re here because we happen to be Japs. We all love life, and our country best, Our misfortune to be here in the west, To keep us penned behind that DAMNED FENCE, Is someone’s notion of NATIONAL DEFENSE! Discuss the document : What was life like in the camps? Why were these camps created? Was this an appropriate action for the U.S. government to take?
Drawing from the PD and the video clip, develop an “evidence statement” using evidence based on opportunities and obstacles (Japanese Internment) to support the assertion.
Japanese ◦ Executive Order 9066 Internment Camps immigrants and citizens West Coast residents upheld as constitutional paid reparations
Answer this as a pair on the back of your worksheet. ◦ How valuable was the home front to Allied victory in World War2? Be sure to defend your assessment with specific evidence.
