This is a lesson for introducing early American literature. Many students struggle with the relevance of Puritan literature, so it is helpful to remind them that there are many voices that make up American culture. This is a great way to show how America is made up of many cultures and they all have different perspectives to bring, cultures to share and literature to express this. This adds to the essential questions of the unit.
