Today's conversations centered around the effects of the Enlightenment and the Great Awakening in the American Colonies. We also examined areas of similarity and difference between the movements and how they affected each other. As part of this process we debriefed our textbook reading and homework over Jonathan Edwards which were due today and added other voices from historical documents. One of those documents was our DocBlock Recitation for the day, taken from the unpublished manuscript of the Autobiography of Nathan Cole, a Connecticut farmer who documented his experiences with the revivalism of the Great Awakening.
Tonight you should look over the Colonies map and map directions under Period 2 on the website. We are not requiring or collecting this map, but you should spend some time becoming familiar with it. If you have any of the first few quizzes to make up or the Summer Assignment for those of you that joined the class after transferring late in the summer, tomorrow's lunch tutorial is the time to get those taken care of! Also, Chapter 5 is due on Monday, so keep that in mind!
