Today we explored some of the features of the early English settlements with an eye toward exposing some of the myths about that time and the roles those myths have played at other times in American history, including to today. We also started a DocBlock analysis of the letter from Richard Frethorne. You need to finish this analysis this weekend and you can find the document under DocBlock on the Period 2 Materials page. You also need to listen to the podcast linked HERE from 99%Invisible and be prepared to discuss it on Tuesday.
One last item... If I were you guys, I would be looking over the map of the English Colonies in America in case we have something like a quiz over that next week sometime! I've attached an old map activity below which would cover anything you would expect to see on the quiz, but the activity itself is not required.
Happy first Friday and have a great (LONG!) weekend!
