We discussed Chapter 4 today then dove into the concept of essential historical questions and historical argumentation by examining some sources on the Salem Witch Trials. We then talked about writing for history, which will be an important focus over the course of the semester, and wrapped up with an analysis of some economic data and maps displaying socio-cultural and economic details of the English Colonies in America.
Tonight, please read the selection from Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" and answer the associated questions. These can be found under Period 2 Materials DocBlock. Be prepared to discuss tomorrow! Also, don't forget to brush up on the colonies map ;)
