Discuss the complex interactions and relationships between Europeans and Native Americans. You will discuss examples of sympathy and hostility as you address three topics:
What are some of the effects of war on peoples lives?
What role does religion play in each group?
How are personal relationships fostered between people of difficult cultures?
Finally I want you to state whether you believe conflict between different people is inevitable.

Review the “Paper Grading Rubric” PDF so you know exactly what criteria I will use to grade your paper.
Write the paper.
The thesis should be stated in the first paragraph, and the rest of the paper should address your thesis.
Note: A thesis statement means nothing if the paper is not completely focused on the main argument. Keep your focus.
Present three pieces of research (or evidence) to back up your thesis. Each evidence paragraph (paragraphs 2-4) should list a minimum of 3 specifics or details.
Reread and revise.
