Jean Studies U.S. History, Part 1
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Hi, Jean, what are we studying today?" Rob asked.
 
2     "We need to start on U.S. history today," Jean replied. "I take my test in three weeks. I'm getting nervous. I really want to pass so that I can become a U.S. citizen."
 
3     "Well, let's get going. What if I quiz you this time?" Rob asked.
 
4     "That sounds good to me," Jean replied. "I'm ready whenever you are."
 
5     "Why did colonists come to America?" Rob asked.
 
6     "They wanted freedom," Jean said. "Some were seeking religious freedom. Others wanted political freedom. They came to make a better life for themselves."
 
7     "That's true," Rob said. "Many people were treated badly in the countries they came from because of their religious beliefs. They didn't want the government to tell them what they should believe in. Others wanted freedom from a government they thought was wrong. These beliefs helped shape this country."
 
8     "That's very interesting. What's the next question?" Jean asked.
 
9     "Who lived in America before the colonists came?" Rob asked.
 
10     "The Native Americans did. I believe they were called Indians," Jean replied.
