Today we tackled the two currents of change in Colonial American society prior to the American Revolution: The Enlightenment and the First Great Awakening. We identified the challenges each of these movements created for each other as well as similarities between the two movements. After examining two sets of primary sources to develop these big picture concepts, we did a DocBlock HAPP analysis of an excerpt from the autobiography of Nathan Cole as a specific historical example of these concepts and changes. We ended the day with team discussion over chapter 4.
Chapter 5 is due Thursday and Chapter 6 on Friday!
