We took Quiz 1 today over Chapter 3 of the textbook. Those grades and the summer assignment and assessment grades will be going into PowerSchools very soon. Today's activities were more along the lines of what you can expect going forward in APUSH, namely, a large percentage of class dedicated to working in one way or another with historical sources then discussing our findings and drawing historical understandings out of them.
Today we focused on the early colonization of North America by the English through the analysis of some passenger lists and of primary sources from Richard Hakluyt, who advocated for English colonization, and from various Jamestown settlers to determine what life was like for them and why.
Tonight, you need to read the selection on Indian Slavery in South Carolina under Period 2 Materials (it's item #3 at the top of the page) and be prepared to discuss it at the beginning of class tomorrow. No notes are required, but are always optional if you choose for this type of homework assignment.
A quick note before i close today. Chapter 5 due date has been moved from Friday, September 8 to Monday, September 11. All other chapter due dates remain the same.
