Today we had our first document intensive day after we discussed and debriefed Chapter 3. We talked in detail about your analysis of the De Las Casas document from this weekend then worked together on the analysis of a document by Richard Hakluyt promoting the colonization of North American by the English.
We followed these exercises by applying the analysis skills to passenger lists from two different ships heading across the Atlantic from England to the American Colonies. We ended the day by pulling the data and text analysis together in one exercise using primary sources and data from Jamestown to answer an essential historical question.
Anything you didn't finish from the DocBlock on Hakylut or the Jamestown exercise needs to be finished to homework. Also you need to read the Slavery in South Carolina document found under Period 2 and be prepared to discuss it tomorrow. I have also linked the homework activities below for your convenience. :)
