Colonizing America

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

From the first permanent English colony at Jamestown, Virginia to the feudal kingdom in Maryland, John Green gives your class a Crash Course in American colonization! 

So what were the English doing in America, anyway? Europeans developed a variety of colonization and migration patterns, influenced by different imperial goals, cultures, and the varied North American environments where they settled. Prompt students to examine the factors that contributed to the establishment of different cultural regions (British, Spanish, French, and Dutch) in North America, how those relationships changed over time, and how the practice of slavery shaped the culture, economy, and conflict of North America.
