What are three ways I can improve my writing and recognize errors in it?
Three ways you can improve your writing skills are as follows: 1. Read. The absolute best way to improve your writing is to read the writing of other brilliant people who have this stuff at least somewhat figured out. 2. Reread and Edit. Reread your paper out loud, read it again in a silly voice, record yourself reading it and listen to the recording. If anything sounds funny or out of place, see what you can do to fix it! Your brain is a lot smarter than you give it credit for. 3. Time management. If you have a week to write a paper, you want to make sure and give yourself plenty of time to rewrite and edit. When I write papers, I usually aim to finish a draft at least three days before the paper is due so that I can have plenty of time to go back over it and take breaks if I get frustrated.
List one way in which the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) directly influenced the building conflict between the American colonies and Britain that would later be called the American Revolution
The Seven Years' War directly influenced the conflict between Great Britain and her North American colonies through straining Britain's fiscal system to its breaking point. Britain had financed its numerous wars with France over the 18th century by borrowing money from itself, creating a gigantic, unstable national debt. In order to stabilize this debt, the Britsih Parliament began attempting (rather unsuccessfully) to tax the American colonies to pay for the war mostly fought, in the minds of the British, to protect them from their French colonial neighbors in Quebec.
What are the three stages into which the French Revolution is typically divided?
The French Revolution (beginning in 1789) can be divided into three stages: conservative (1789-1791), radical (1792-1794), and imperial (1798-1814/5). The conservative stage was lead by individuals such as the Marquis de Lafayette and favored a change in the governmental structure of France leaving King Louis XVI in power as a constitutional monarch. The radical stage of the revolution was lead by Robespierre's Committee of Public Safety and saw the entire removal of the King of France (and said King of France's head) in favor of a democracy. The final imperial stage of the revolution was lead by Napoleon Bonaparte and lasted until the British defeated Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo in 1815.
