Unit 2 Scholarly Activity
After reading the lecture and required readings for this unit, use the knowledge you have learned to write a three page
essay on one of the topics below:
Bacon’s revolt on Jamestown, Va.;
The Pueblo Revolt; and
Salem witch trials
In order to support your discussion, you will need to select at least one outside source from the CSU Library. Your essay
must address, but are not limited to, the following items listed below:
Introduce the event. This may include what happened, the reason, setting, location, timeline, outcome, and
Describe how characteristics of the region of Colonial America impacted your chosen conflict.
Discuss the American ideals or philosophies that may have caused this event to occur. How have these ideals
and philosophies changed to the way we live today?
Discuss your perspective on the event, including, but not limited to, what was inevitable or avoidable, and what
was beneficial or costly.
Again, be sure to review the required reading about what to look for in a scholarly resource, and if you have trouble
locating an article, contact a librarian to assist you. Your assignment, which should be three pages total, will not be
accepted if your source(s) are not available in CSU’s Online Library, and the article you choose must be completely cited
