Excerpt

This chapter examines important aspects of the colonial experience and the founding of the nation. Students use writings by Columbus and his contemporaries to understand the motives behind exploration and the perceptions explorers had of this “New World.” They research key colonies to appreciate both their diversity and the experiences and problems they had in common, and they explore the importance of imperial policy and the colonial reaction to it that brought about the Revolution. Finally, students analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and the political theory underlying the Constitution.
