This week, we will be studying the colonial history of the United States. We will begin with the Virginia colony as it grew out of Jamestown before moving North into the New England colonies, and finally wrapping up with the Southern colonies. We will work to analyze the differences between the three colonial regions. This will include labor, culture, and politics in each of the three regions. The week will end with a study of the Salem Witch Trials and the Great Awakening.
On Friday 8/12, we will have our first quiz of the semester. The quiz will cover everything we have learned so far this year, including the Jamestown colony, indentured servitude, and regional differences.
