The Great Awakening and the Enlightenment were the focus of our conversation today. We first wrapped up some loose ends from Friday with a brief analysis of some Colonial data in map form. We then explored the connections between and influence of Enlightenment thought and the Great Awakening movement in late Colonial society. We wrapped up with a DocBlock over an excerpt from an autobiography by Nathan Cole which discussed the personal effects of attending a sermon by George Whitfield in 1740.
Don't forget to review the map of the English Colonies tonight. you can find a blank map and directions under Period 2.
