This led to the regions developing different political and social structures.

22 Organization

23 By 1700 the New England and Chesapeake colonies developed into two distinct societies in spite the fact they were both settled by people of English origin, because upon arrival, the New English set up a theocracy while the Chesapeake colonists established a government based on wealth and aristocracy, leading differences in the economic and political structures of the colonies.

24 Organization

25 5. Documents Analyze all documents – Look at title, date & author – Why are they significant? – Why do they show?

26 Fit as many documents as you can into your already outlined essay. – Each document does different things so try to use most if not all of them. – Try to cite the document by type “As the map (document B) indicates…and as the cartoon (document D) shows…” Or by name: “As Hamilton argued, the National Bank was essential for national growth.”

27 If possible, like brief descriptions to the names you use. – “Alexander Stephens, a Whig senator from Georgia, noted in the Southern Literary Journal that the South…”

28 6. Strive for Balance While coverage of the documents is important, but the INCLUSION OF OUTSIDE INFORMATION IS CRITICAL. Strive for balance.

29 Preferred Approach State your thesis clearly and directly in the first paragraph. Write a paragraph setting the scene and demonstrating outside knowledge Finally, move on to support your thesis with a nice blend of SPECIFIC information from both documents and outside sources. Write a concession paragraph and conclusion.
