HIST 55200: Colonial America

As an upper level course, this class seeks to introduce students to major schools of thought (and the most well-known historians) regarding contact, colonization, and social life in the North American colonies. Students will selectively synthesize information from the readings into short, in-class written responses. On biweekly quizzes, students will demonstrate their ability to identify key persons, places, and events named in the readings and lectures. I include topics from periods 1-3 in APUSH.

Please review the syllabus for full course information.

This is a Summer II course. Participants may register for one Full Semester course OR one course each in Summer I and Summer II.
