South Carolina History - Mr. Knowles
History in Pictures
At the beginning of this school year we are going to team together to trace the origins of the first people in South Carolina, from the Native Americans to the European settlers, with a focus on developing your ability to use content literacy.
You will be introduced to a more in-depth study of the Native American culture of the Eastern Woodland tribal group. You will focus on the exploration and creation of settlements by France, Spain, and England. You will examine causes, issues, and accomplishments surrounding these European settlements in the Americas and specifically South Carolina during the 17th and 18th centuries. Emphasis will be placed on understanding what made South Carolina a distinctly southern colony.
