Review for the Second Midterm
The midterm will be held Thursday November 5th.
The main themes to understand for this exam have to do with strategies of colonization and the economic, political, and social systems that went with them. Think in particular about the ways colonial strategies went along with economic aims.
Make sure you understand the differences between French and English designs on North America, and the different interactions they had with indigenous people.
Think about the roots of U.S. Indian policy that came from the British.
When looking at the different strategies of colonization, use examples from different regions highlighted in class. Such as:
- Consider the roles played and decisions made by Native groups during the French and Indian Wars and the American Revolution. Think about local consequences to global interaction.
- Look at the Spanish colonization of the Southwest for culture contact, change and formulation. Think about how actions taken by numerous different parties impacted the course of history and the region (and our ideas about it) today.
- Study the African Diaspora and slavery in the New World. Pay particular attention to changes over time, geographic differences, population, demographics and the economic consequences.
