Reading Journal for Early American History

 

In the journal you will write observations and reflections on your reading in Connecting California.  Please focus on a few documents.  When you mention a document you read, please put the title of the document in bold (or a few words from the title).  You may also comment on parts of our main textbook that you see as related.

 

Examine each document critically, and consider how it adds to our understanding of the history.  You may also write your own reflections on what you are learning.
