We discussed the French and Indian War today first from the experience of George Washington with the goal of understanding the personal nature of history and of motivations for historical actors, then be examining in closer detail the thoughts of three individuals, each representing a different group of people with interest in America in 1754. We also took the Chapter 5 quiz and discussed Thesis Statements for history.
Tonight you need to finish your notes for Chapter 6 (Due Wednesday) and post your rough draft thesis statement to the appropriate discussion board below. You can review the powerpoint directions for writing an APUSH thesis on the Writing Tips page (hover the APUSH Exam Review link on the menu). The essay question to which you are responding is:
To what extent and in what ways did European powers develop different patterns of colonization in N. America? Support your answer with specific and relevant historical information from the period 1607 to 1754.
