-Manifest Destiny: ideology that defended that the USA were destined or had the providential mission (by God) of expainding from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. It supported their Westward expansion.
-Monroe Doctrine: (1823): prohibition of intervention of the Europeans countries in America. If that defended, it would be seen as an agression and would provoke the USA intervention. It was summarized on the slogan “America for the Americans”
-Roosevelt Corollary: Theodore Roosevelt completed the Monroe Doctrine, declaring the right of the USA to intervine in America if their interests (or the interests of their companies) were in danger. This led to the beginning of a series of interventions of the USA army, in Central and South America and Caribbean Sea.

Then Paqui has explained us all the summary, and all the territories conquered in his computer. Paqui has said that we have to add Russia and Japan to this colonies in our summaries. After this, we have listened to the explanation of the Westward expansion, that Paqui put yesterday in the blog.
Paqui has said to Fernando G. That he isn’t doing any good thing, because he was doing stupid things. Paqui has also said that there is some students in the class that were not doing anything, for example Gemma and Gonzalo.
Paqui has searched a link in the blog about the prisoners of Guantanamo, this is an image about this and below you have the link.
Then Paqui went to Elpais.com to put the radio because of the draw of the Champions. Finally, the page of Elpais haven’t worked, so finally we haven’t listened to that.
Then Paqui has said us that for homework, we have to divide the positive and negative consequences of colonialism in our notebooks for next class, so don’t forget it!

Westward expansion- Expansión hacia el Oeste
If you don’t have listened to the results of the draws; they are:
