think and write like a historian. Choose a topic you have read about in the textbook and lecture notes, and write about its importance to the settling of the New World and the settling of the English colonies.

You can only use the following sources:

1) The presentation slides and notes

2) The textbook

Everything we have covered so far in these materials is allowed to be used, included primary source images, interactive maps, and graphs. But it is very important to note that you must use these sources in a meaningful way is required to earn full credit for this paper. Essays that use sources other than what is allowed will not receive credit.

Remember to clearly state your thesis, directly address your topic, and use the sources above as evidence to advance your argument. A paper that simply discusses the topic without delving into significant issues will not suffice. Critical thinking, analysis based on the available facts, and execution of the assignment according to the guidelines are what I am looking for in this writing assignment.
