Step #1 Read the question or prompt carefully: Read the question three times and be able to paraphrase the question and know the essential task demanded by it. Answering the question will be the central focus of your essay, and you want to be sure to ATFP:
Explain how geographic and environmental factors shaped the development of various communities in North America prior to European colonization.
What type of prompt is this?
What is your purpose?
Unit 1 encompasses the first and second chapters of the textbook. So, read the first and second chapters, skim it anything else, and I'd recommend using post it notes when reading/taking notes...
Students should be reading 30-60 pages of the text book
each and every week.

Period 1 (1491-1607)
On a North American continent controlled by American Indians, contact among the peoples of Europe, the Americas, and West Africa created a new world.
Key Concept 1.1:
Before the arrival of Europeans, native populations in North America developed a wide variety of social, political, and economic structures based in part on interactions with the environment and each other.
Key Concept 1.2:
European overseas expansion resulted in the Columbian Exchange, a series of interactions and adaptations among societies across the Atlantic.
Key Concept 1.3:
Contacts among American Indians , Africans, and Europeans challenged the worldviews of each group.
