JournalFor the first journal entry, go to http://britishempire.co.uk and scroll down on the right to the picture labeled “Maproom” and click on it. Then click on “Full list of colonies” http://britishempire.co.uk/timeline/colonies.htm and choose one that you want to learn more about this semester. Do NOT choose colonies we are learning about as a class – India, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Africa (Nigeria). Also, do NOT pick one of the former American 13 colonies. Be careful about picking somewhere so small that they might not have an author whose short story you can read for a future journal entry.
Create a single-spaced bulleted list in Times New Roman 12 point highlighting the most important historical points regarding Britain's entry into the country and subsequent colonization efforts. Then type a double-spaced paragraph discussing your impressions and what you learned from your research. Type an MLA style citation for your source(s).
