New England vs. Chesapeake [1993 DBQ – reworded] Compare and contrast the development of New England and Chesapeake societies between 1607-1700.
What THREE analytical categories (“buckets”) will you choose to write about? In other words, what will be the main points of each paragraph (i.e. religion was one factor that caused the two regions to evolve into two distinct societies)? Write the 3 “buckets” on the next page where indicated.
After you have thought of your 3 “buckets” and supporting facts, write your mini-thesis for each bucket in the space provided. Your mini-thesis should be the specific argument that you will be making for each “bucket” (buckets will turn into paragraphs).
Write an introduction for the prompt. Reference the “Introductory Paragraph and Thesis Statement” handout to remind you on this process. The introduction and thesis is the first impression that the reader will have of your essay.
