*gulp* DBQ help?

Yeah... I was in the hospital over the weekend and my teacher was nice enough to give me an extension to tomorrow to turn in my DBQ. I have no idea what the question is even asking though! :confused: The question is:

In what ways did the French and Indian War alter the ploitical, economic and ideological relations between Britain and its American Colonies?

Can someone please just give me a few ideas to go on? Thanks! :o

Os I've gotten some points down from the book and the documents. From the book and notes I've got:
Americans got valuable military experience alongside the "invincible" British
BUT there was friction b/w the officers and soldiers
Americans wanted the credit for securing New World Empire
It was mainly the British
Some colonies didn't put forth all of their efforts into the cause
Some colonies refused to provide troops and money
wanted englishmen liberties- not responsibilities (?) and duties (taxes)
Hurted American and British (mainly British trade) with the indians (significant?)
During the war the Americans developed valuable trade posts with Spain and the French W. Indies
Contradicting British action
When the war was over there was a new spirit of independence
Proclamation of 1763 prohibited settlement beoynd apalachains
1765- colonials went westward from N. Carolina in 1000 wagons

:confused: :confused: :confused:

I wrote this exact same DBQ last year, I remember it, but not terribly well. The fact that I'm currently half-asleep doesn't help either.

You're pretty much going in the correct direction. I'd just say take what you have, and expand on the effects of each. And tell why the war influenced these changes. Otherwise, I think you're fairly well set.

+2 points as well for being the ONLY thread i read in this forum today that I didn't have to close. Thank you for reading the rules.
