Can someone check my answers:

1. What allowed settlers to Establish a colony in Texas?

The fact that the land was unsettled allowed Texans to settle in texas

2. How did the Interaction between the settlers in Texas and the Mexican government develop and change over time?

Over time the interaction developed into bearable interactions

3. How do you think the perspective of the Texas settlers and the Mexican government would vary?

I think the perspective would vary because the Mexican government saw it as asn invasion while Texas settlers saw it as just an area that was unsettled in and took it.

4. On what things might the Mexican government and the Texas settlers agree?

I think that they would agree that it was unsettled but Mexicans believe it was their land while American’s believed it wasn’t.

Texas settlers were looking to form a new republic. While Mexicans were trying to preserve their land.

  2. for question 1 is this better??

    1. What allowed settlers to Establish a colony in Texas?

    For the economic perspective buying land at a much cheaper price it would help the settlers ensure a hopeful future. But in a Mexican perspective they were allowed to settle there because Mexico was trying to create a more powerful government and stay in control. In order to stay in control they decided to grant land to American settlers in hope to strengthen an alliance to retain power. However it backfired and the American’s gained more control.

  5. Yes. Always be on the safe side, whether you quote or paraphrase (put into your own words).

    That's a good answer to that question -- but I'd omit that last sentence. That comes up later!

  7. 2. How did the Interaction between the settlers in Texas and the Mexican government develop and change over time?

    In the beginning it was an alliance. As the war progressed the alliance faded to a hostile/enemy interaction. After the war ended and the settlers won it became a bearable interaction

  10. Better?

    In the beginning it was an alliance in hope that they would have a controlled government. As the war progressed the alliance faded because the settlers felt they had a right to be independent. After the war ended and the settlers won it became a bearable interaction

  11. Omit the last sentence. "After the war" is not included in this question.

    There was also the issue of religion. The Mexican govt required all settlers to be Catholic. How do you think that went over among the Anglo settlers? Read Bob Pursley's reply I linked for you (the second link).

  12. more like this?

    In the beginning Mexico was hopeful that they would have a controlled government with the settlers. As the war progressed the hope faded because the settlers felt they had a right to be independent. So they went against Mexico. After the war ended and the settlers won it became a bearable interaction such as they will have a decent attitude towards each other.

  13. Please, please, please, read question 2 again. It's not asking about the Texas war for independence nor what happened after the war. It's asking about time from when Anglos first starting coming into Texas to settle and then over time. And PLEASE read that second linked article I gave you above.

    The Anglos knew Mexico's conditions, including becoming Catholic, but what? What went on between the beginning of settling in Texas and the break-down BEFORE the war?

  15. Why? Think of question 2 as referring to the time from when Mexico's govt okayed the land-grant process and encouraged settlers to come into Texas until the relationship between the settlers and Mexico's government really started falling apart.

    As Bob Pursley wrote, "Settlers came because of free land (but they did not become 'Mexican' in language, religion (Catholic), and politics. (They were inclined to be independent and democratic). So it didn't work out well for the government of Mexico."

    All this led up to the war for Texas's independence, but not the war itself nor the results of the war. Forget the war, for this question. How did attitudes and feelings change between early settlement and when things started really falling apart.

  16. While Mexicans expected the settlers to acquire the Mexican Religion, Politics, and Language, the Settlers did the opposite because they decided to become independent. Which Backfired on Government of Mexico. Which made Mexico felt as though they were being invaded.

  17. Well, I don't know about invasion. Look at a map to see how far Mexico City is from Texas. Texas was land that Mexico couldn't get their own people to settle down in! Thus, they allowed Anglos from the US to do so -- if they followed Mexico's rules -- but of course, eventually they didn't.

    Here's how I'd revise your last effort:

    While Mexico's government expected the settlers to acquire the Mexican religion, politics, and language, the settlers did the opposite because they had been used to being independent. Offering free land in order to get settlers in Texas backfired on the government of Mexico.

  18. 3.How do you think the perspective of the Texas settlers and the Mexican government would vary?

    I think in the perspective would vary because Mexico saw it as an invasion and an abuse of trust. While Settlers saw it as independence. Such as Mexico had only a few rules to settlers forming there but the settlers didn’t follow them. While settlers were used to there independence and believed that the rules weren’t good. S they rebelled and formed their own republic.

  19. Where are you getting this invasion idea? Mexico's govt wanted Texas settled and worked with empresarios to bring Anglo settlers in. And "Mexico had only a few rules"? Really? That all the settlers needed to learn Spanish and become Catholic? Don't you think those were more than "only a few rules"?

    The rest seems okay, but be sure you make sure you have no sentence fragments, runons, misspellings, etc. Read it aloud to your dad and find those fragments and runons, etc.
