I’m studying for my History class and need an explanation.

  • “Columbus’ Probanza de mérito of 1493” in Openstax College, US History (Openstax College), accessed 18 February 2017, 38.
  • “George Percy and the First Months at Jamestown” in Openstax College, US History (Openstax College), accessed 18 February 2017, 48.
  • “Bartolomé de las Casas on the Mistreatment of Indians” in Openstax College, US History (Openstax College), accessed 18 February 2017, 54.

Now, incorporate your understanding of the makings of racial difference and discrimination with these sources on early colonial slavery:

  • ‘For prevention of that abominable mixture…’” in Women’s America: Refocusing the Past, 7th ed., Linda K. Kerber et. al. (New York: Oxford University Press, 2011), 108.
  • “A Massachusetts Minister’s Slave Marriage Vows” in Women’s America: Refocusing the Past, 7th ed., Linda K. Kerber et. al. (New York: Oxford University Press, 2011), 108-109.

There are several parallels that you can make between native and African peoples in colonial America. First, brainstorm and list similarities and 2 differences in the colonial experiences of the peoples. Then, based on your findings, make a statement about their overall experience in a single argumentative sentence. Yes, folks, you are making a thesis statement here.

Prompt: Compare and contrast the experiences of native and African peoples in colonial America.

  • When you approach a “compare and contrast” essay, always make a list of similarities and differences. Based on those lists, pick one list to use for your essay.

1. Think of 3 topic sentences.

  • Remember that topic sentences give the point of the paragraph, in other words, they give the topic of the para.
  • For example:
    • Ed Sheerin writes his own songs based on his life growing up in Great Britain.
    • Sheerin writes love ballads and also includes rap lyrics in some of his song repertoire.
    • Duets with Taylor Swift and Beyonce have made Sheerin popular across several genres of music.
      • The topics are that Sheerin writes songs, sings love and rap songs, and performs with big headline artists.

2. Think of a thesis statement/argument.

  • Remember that the thesis statement relates the topic sentences together in an argument that addresses historical forces.
  • For example:
    • Ed Sheerin is the most talented and diverse artist of his generation.
      • Note that I have not repeated the topics; I have thought and related together the topic to create an argument in thesis statement form.
  • You must provide a short parenthetical citation for every response to a source as you would in a RW. For example, (Scott, 1055).
