For Honors and Regular US History classes!

Americans Textbook link

Read/skim through Chapter 1 (Exploration and the Colonial Era), Sections 2-3.  You will not need to turn this in, but identify the problems/concerns colonies had along with identifying what made them successful.  The more problems/concerns and successful attributes you gather the more you will know how to construct your own to be the most successful in class.  Your classmates and Miss Nelson will critique your colony and compare to others to determine which colony would be the most successful.  That winning colony group will receive extra credit in all 3 tenets in the gradebook.

Create A Colony

Read this rundown of the project.  The rubric will change because it is using the old tenets.  The new one will be given to you in class.  The overall project will be discussed in class on Thursday/Friday, along with group selection and region assignments.  Come to class with any questions/comments/concerns you may have after looking over the assignment.  No component needs to be even started tonight for this portion, just skim/read the above sections at the top of this posting.
