Today we focused our conversation on the development of the English Colonies in America bay first taking a deep dive in to the complicated forces at work within the Salem Witch Panic. This exercise hopefully illustrated the kinds of interrelated factors including religion, politics, economics, inter-group conflicts, and more which drove the colonial governments and societies to develop in ways unique from the home country of England.
Our second main activity for the day was to analyze some raw historical data in table and map form. The information you gathered from this analysis will be assessed in a Colonies Quiz on Friday which will also draw geographical information which you can find in the old Colonies Map assignment under Period 2 on the website.
Tonight, you need to read and answer the questions associated with the selection "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" by Jonathan Edwards. Also, don't forget that Chapter 4 is due tomorrow!
