March 3, 2011

Students read about two key building tensions in 18th Century colonial America:

  • the tension between the European settles and Native Americans over colonial westward expansion into American Indian lands; and
  • the tension among colonists and preachers, like George Whitefield pictured below, over the shifting religious beliefs and practices of the settlers as European Americans became more industrious and profitable.


In the following podcast, the student analyze primary source quotes the the time period to understand various perspectives of people who lived during this tumultuous time.
