Now for the Test

Here are your first assignments.  You do NOT need to memorize the material.  Just take in what you can. 
**Throughout the course, at each weekly meeting, we will gather to discuss the reading material, answer any of your questions, review your notes and discuss the videos.**  

1) Read pages 11 - 34 of the REA book.  Take notes if you like, as this will help you to remember.  Do not worry if you do not understand it all.  Remember, this is college material and we have plenty of time.
2) Use this link from  the site for the readings:

*If the reading link is broken you can direct access the reading assignments at

- Scroll down the page and click/read the "Unit 1: Early America"

(if this link doesn't work, try this one: and read corresponding time era info)

3) Click and view the "VIDEO" for "Program 1: New World Encounters" AND "Program 2: English Settlement" using the following link for the "Biography of America" series, scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions" to locate those videos. 

Email me with any final questions you may have about the material or the exam and we'll find the answers together!
