Activity Overview


In order to better understand the Truman Doctrine, it's helpful for students to analyze Truman’s own words and principles in regards to how the President wanted to guide foreign policy in response to Soviet influence directly from the document. Using a chart storyboard, students will examine direct quotes and break down what each quote means in their own words. This will help serve as a way for students to connect with the document and better understand how Truman conducted foreign policy.

Students may als consider extending their storyboard to include a third row that outlines the reactions to these ideas, determining whether other countries complied with the proposals and the effects the Truman Doctrine had on foreign relations.
