Impact of British Advent in USA. Please Comment.
 
I have been an on and off member of Cssforum. The current lock down has inclined me towards serious preparation. While studying US History, I have realized my answers usually lack details and length.
For practice, I have tried to answer a question from US History 2017. Can someone please comment on the length and content of the answer?

[B]Q: Discuss in detail the impact of British Advent in America.[/B]

[B][U]Outline[/U][/B]

Introduction
-Exploration of America
-Colonization
-First British Colony

Impacts of British Advent
-A threat to lifestyle of Natives
.Land Usage etc.
-Diseases
-Trade
.Greed
.Tribal Fights
-Colonial Wars

Conclusion

[B]Introduction[/B]

New world was first discovered by Columbus in 1492 after which a wave of other Mariners and Explorers made it to the present day America. John Cabot's voyage allowed the British to make their claims on the land. The colonization was a result of greed, religious persecution in Britain and the pursuit of imperial glory. The first British colony ever made was Jamestown, Virginina in 1607.

[B]Impact of British Advent[/B]

Natives had been living there for thousands of years. Their lifestyle was pretty simple and relied on agriculture for food. Elements of nature played a huge role in their spiritual beliefs. Land was common and, therefore, anybody could cultivate anywhere. This was contrary to the lifestyle that British people followed. Not long after the British people set their feet on the soil, Natives started feeling that the British were a threat to their lifestyle. With time, it proved to be true.
Natives in North America weren't familiar with the infectious diseases and therefore their immune systems weren't ready for it. British, similar to their Spanish counterparts, brought contagious diseases which wiped out a score of Native American population.
Contrary to our usual beliefs, British didn't only cause the scourge to the society. They brought a script which natives lacked. And, metal tools which Natives had never seen before. This started a trade relationship between the British and Natives. Natives would trade fur and food for utensils, tools and weapons. It was a sweet tale until greed slipped in between the tribes and Natives started fighting. They fought for the best hunting grounds and lands so they could trade more. Sadly it did include guns now.
Similarly, English started fighting Dutch and French colonies to dominate the trade. Within a stretch of few years, the American continent was in turmoil with mounds of dead people.

[B]Conclusion[/B]

Although the American continent improved trade and was made familiar to a script, she lost a lot of its people. Colonies fought; countries won and lost. But what did they actually lose? Pieces of Lands. The real losers were the Native Americans who lost not only the lands but their values, their people and most importantly their way of living.

My opinion: answer needs to focused on impact on America not on Europe
or Britain. You can write what Europeans did there. Hope you understand it.

Brother, your outline is good but try to replace some of your like, "land usage and greed" by others as members have mentioned many good points.
Suggestion: Better if you can add Positive and Negative impacts, it will enhance expression.

Content is really good but Innocent Hafeez, i think, you need to rephrase certain sub-headings like,[B]"European/western culture and values," "Impact on American demography[/B]
Before advent: Land of Indians (sole group)
After advent: British people, Europeans, African-Americans (slaves),
persecuted religious minorities (Puritans)"[/B]
You can rephrase like,[COLOR="Red"] introduction of new culture, inclusion of Britons and African-Americans, and mixed ones...[/COLOR] And, more.

And,your heading "Steps for self-government" is bit contradictory to me, because the question asks about impacts caused by British advent in America. So your heading gives a sense that you are referring to self-govt. by natives, which is not the case by then and now. You can replace it by giving a better face.

Why England Failed to take the initiatives in the colonization of American Continent?
 
[QUOTE=Innocent Hafeez;1109625]Dear thanks too. Your outline is also well written. i would suggest Post some more questions so that we could practice past papers. Thanks[/QUOTE]

That is great. I second this idea. Please check this outline for a question from the past paper. If possible, please share yours as well.

[B]Why England failed to take the initiatives in the colonization of American Continent? What factors were responsible for the British interest in establishing their colonies in the areas that are now part of The United States? [/B]

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"][B]Why England failed to take the initiatives in the colonization of American Continent[/B][/COLOR]

[B]Introduction[/B]
Jamestown was the first English colony on American continent that came into existence in 1607 -- almost a 100 years after John Cabot made his voyage to North of America. This delay in colonization as compared to other European powers like Spain was due to a handful of reasons. Some of the reasons are mentioned below.

1. Religious Conflicts : Separation from Roman Church
2. Poverty
3. Entangled in Wars
4. Lack of Interest : Privateers served the purpose.

[B]Conclusion[/B]
It would be pertinent to conclude that not only the problems that intertwined England were the only reasons for this delay in the colonization. England, mainly due to its lack of interest, didn't feel the need for the colonization until late 16th Century.

[COLOR="darkslateblue"][B]British Interest in Colonization of America[/B][/COLOR]

[B]Introduction[/B]
Previously, we have discussed apropos what stopped England from colonizing American continent until 1607. So, what actually led England to colonize afterwards? And that too with such a vigor that the English population outnumbered Spanish and French colonies in a matter of few decades. Although there were a handful of reasons, the major ones were the Three G's : God, Gold and Glory. Three G's can be further divided in simple terms as enlisted.

1. Religious Persecution: Pilgrims, Puritans
2. Trade: Search for Gold
3. Poverty: More land, More resources.
4. Imperial Race

[B]Conclusion[/B]
Although England joined the race late, it caught up pretty quickly. Aforementioned reasons contributed to the establishment of 13 English colonies which were populous than other European colonies in the continent.
