AR.SS.H. History: Era 1-Beginnings to Era 3-1820s
H.12.5. United States Beginnings Through 1820s - Students will analyze key historical periods; patterns of change over time; and ways people view, construct, and interpret the history of the United States.
Era 1: Beginnings to 1620
H.12.5.4. Evaluate short- and long-term effects of European exploration and settlement in the Americas and Arkansas from multiple perspectives (e.g., Roanoke, Jamestown, disease, conflict) (D2.His.5, 14.3-5).
Era 2: Colonization and Settlement 1585-1763
H.12.5.5. Compare the social, economic, political, and geographic development of the New England, middle, and southern colonies from multiple perspectives using a variety of sources (e.g., Native Americans, Africans, colonists, indentured servants, colonial leaders, Europeans, farmers, merchants) (D2.Civ.2, 4, 8, 12.3-5; D2.Eco.1, 2, 3, 5.3-5; D2.Geo.1, 4, 6, 7, 8.3-5; D2.His.1, 4, 5, 10, 14.3-5).
H.12.5.7. Research the development of the colonies by generating compelling and supporting questions to guide inquiry (e.g., Why did people settle where they did? How did they solve problems? Was life better in the colonies than in England? Was life better in some colonies than others? How were patterns of settlement influenced by beliefs, economics, and geography?) (D2.His.3. 3-5; D1.2.3-5).
