This period in AP US History is a bundled unit. The unit has 4 lessons that deal with colonial society - government, economics, and religion. One lesson deals with the influence of the Mayflower Compact and Winthrop's "City Upon A Hill" speech on the nation's democratic principles. The second lesson deals with Puritanical New England. Each primary source has questions for student understanding. The third lesson contains a series of primary sources that illustrate (in great detail) the tumultuous events of the 17th century (Bacon's Rebellion, the Salem Witchcraft Trials, and Stono's Rebellion). The last lesson in this unit is a comparison of indentured servitude and slavery in the 17th century American colonies. The lessons are aligned to the AP US History Key Concept Standards.
