Although may Europeans used similar patterns of colonization, primarily based upon the search for riches and the intention to expand their religion, differences arose in different political and social ideals, differences in the environment in America, and differences in economic goals all in which lead to differences in type of settlement and the location of such a settlement.
Verbose, needs trimming. Also all main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons
While many European countries came to North America for some similar goals like wealth and power, their patterns of colonization were different with respect to relations with natives, ways they profited, and religious beliefs.
Religious beliefs is not an outcome or pattern. Try "role of religion in politics and society," or "religious institutions." Counterpoint also needs to be a pattern, not a goal or cause.
Although many European countries wanted to expand their territory, each European power colonized North America for their own rationale and based their methods of colonization on their own beliefs and principles.
The question asks how they colonized, not reasons, wants or philosophies.
Although all European colonies were created with the end goal of gaining wealth and power, the differences in religion, relations with natives and the type of material being extracted shaped the way each colony developed.
All main points and counterpoint need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. Some of yours need reworked to meet this.
Although European powers shared similar motives of expanding their domain and spreading their religion, their manner of establishing their colonies differed vastly, such as their development of distinct economies, their degree of religious tolerance, and their treatment of indigenous peoples.
A bit wordy and the counterpoint needs to be a specific way or outcome like your main points, not a motive or goal.
Whilst all European powers desired to colonize the New World, differences in the developed colonial patterns was not a result of past experience of colonization, instead, it was the difference of imperial goods, the environment, and separate cultures.
Awkwardly phrased. Also, all main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons or desires.
Even though some of the European powers colonized in the same way their reasons to colonize were different, whether it be for religious reasons, economical reasons, or for global power.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
While all European countries desired to found colonies in North America, each country was conducting themselves based on the economic opportunity present, their native country's culture, and existing relationship with the native people.
The second main point and the counterpoint are more causes, not WAYS or OUTCOMES. Your last point needs to drop "existing."
Even though Europeans colonized the Americas with similar motives, such as money, religion and power, their establishment of colonies differed in terms of location, economy and the general lifestyle they adopted.
Location is not a way or outcome. Try something like "adaptations to environment." also, the counterpoint needs to be a specific way or outcome as well.
European countries created different patterns of colonization in North America through the variations of religion, exports, and interactions with the land and the natives, even though they shared certain ideas, like the use of slaves and gaining power through the acquisition of land.
Need to create argument by expressing significance of difference. Also, variations of religion is not a way or outcome of colonization. Counterpoint also needs to be a specific similarity.
Despite the motives European countries shared for colonization such as wealth, trade power, and religious expansion, differentiating colonial patterns seen in the New World were primarily based on the location of landfall, purpose of land use, and the power the country possessed back in Europe.
Point three is off topic. Also, the counterpoint needs to be a specific similarity in the WAY or OUTCOME of colonization, not a cause or motive.
Although European countries had mutual desires to colonize the new world, many differences emerged among the various European powers including economic, political, social, and environmental discrepancies.
Narrow main points to three and rephrase them aand the counterpoint as WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
Although Europeans shared certain methods in colonizing the Americas, each power developed a different pattern of settlement through native interactions, religious beliefs, and financial wishes.
Last two points are awkward. Religion is not a way or outcome of colonization. Try "religious institutions," or "the role of religion in politics and society." Not sure what you mean by financial wishes, but all main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. Also the counterpoint needs to be a specific similarity.
Despite similar motives such as wealth and expanding trade routes, European powers developed distinctive patterns of colonization in the US due to religious reform and socioeconomic trade.
Need a third main point. Also all main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
Although European colonies were established for similar purposes such as the acquiring of power and wealth, the pattern of colonization is North America varied throughout depending on several factors such geographic location, purpose of colonizing of the people in that area, and primary economies of that area.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. Your third point meets this criteria.
Although the similar goals of different European powers, such as gaining wealth to compete with other powers, caused similarities in different countries' colonies, different values, geography, and purposes led each European power to approach factors such as Native relations, social hierarchy, and economic systems uniquely.
Lots of lists of three items so it's hard to tell what you are wanting to argue as main points. Clear out the fluff. All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
Although there were many similar goals among all the different European nations, the approaches they took were unique, both ecoomically and socially, which led to different outcomes.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons..
Although many colonists went to America to spread religion and gain religious freedom, their main strategy was economic gain, the French and Dutch settled in areas where they were able to trade with natives, the Spanishs goal was to conquer and purge and the British claimed the Eastern coast in order to transport and trade goods easily.
Thanks for fixing "Spanishs" ;) The main points, however need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not the different nations. You should discuss every nation you choose to compare in every paragraph.
Although similar colonization strategies were used by some European nations, colonies developed different colonization strategies depending on their faith, colonization motives, and geographical location.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons
Although many European colonists strived for similar outcomes of God, gold and glory with their explorations, the outcomes of success and interactions with native Americans differed in area of settlement.
You need more that one main point and all main points and counterpoint need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons
Though the the European colonists in America may have begun developing their own identity from 1607 to 1754, the colonies were primarily influenced by the attitudes and overarching desires of the European powers, with powerful effects on the the colonies' priorities, type of economy, religion, relationships with the natives, and sense of community.
Drop the "priorities" point and change the "religion" point to a way or outcome of settlement ("role of religion in politics and society," or "religious institutions.") Watch passive voice (may have begun developing as opposed to just developed)
Although most imperialistic nations had similar strategies for colonization, contrasting patterns of colonization were established by different European countries based on distinctive cultural ideals, economic goals, and social structures.
Just "imperial." All main points and counterpoint need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons or bases.
Many European nations came to the Americas in hopes of finding wealth in material resources, power, and spreading their religion, even though their reasons were similar, each European empire colonized in its own unique manner
So you didn't give me any main points for your argument even though you overdeveloped the counterpoint portion. All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
The European empires who led in North America colonization differed significantly in their methods of colonization, hierarchy and religious motives and Native American relations, but all of them colonized for economic gain.
Awkward phrasing. Needs to express that you think the differences are of greater importance than the similarity. All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons
Although most imperial powers in Europe wished to claim land in and influence the New World, the goals of each country were different based on economic desires, religious missions, and the methods by which the religious missions were carried out.
All main points and counterpoint need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons.
Although all European powers helped colonize North America, each European power colonized in different ways from religious reasons to economic and cultural stand points.
Not sure what you mean with the third point. All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. Your counterpoint should also be a specific similarity, not just that they all colonized.
The 17th century to the mid 18th century marked a period of colonization in North America by multiple European powers for religious, economic and social reasons, which created diversity in colonization patterns.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. You say there is a diversity, so in what ways? That's where your main points go. Counterpoint should also be a specific way they were similar.
From the early 17th century to the mid 18th century many different European powers colonized in the "new world", although many different colonies had different relationships with their home country and the Natives, they were all colonizing for economic gain and to be the strongest European power.
All main points need to be WAYS they colonized or OUTCOMES of colonization, not reasons. Looks like you are arguing similarities were more important. If that's so, make sure I can see that clearly with the way you phrase your argument.
Despite settling on the same continent, each and everyone of the European settled their colony in different ways based on trade, religion, government, and the environment of which they were settling.
Narrow it to three main points and make sure they are phrased as WAYS or OUTCOMES. The similarity that they all settled America is a condition of the question and therefore a weak counterpoint.
Although there are similar values and desires between European powers for initionally colonizing the americas, they all had different ways of how they did this based on their relationships with the native Americans, their religious tolerance and how they explored the world around them.
Past tense! The third point is weak. Drop the "based on" phrase. Counterpoint needs to be a specific similarity in ways or outcomes like the main points are. Proofread ;)
