Product Description
This comprehensive presentation about America's Colonial Period and Puritanism is great for American History class or as a launch into an American Literature unit. Lots of information and engaging graphics make this presentation an effective introduction or mini-lesson.

I use this comprehensive look at Colonial America and Puritanism
as an introduction to an Early American Literature unit which includes

"Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"

and also as an introduction to The Crucible,

which is modern drama, but set in Puritan New England.

There are 41 slides and over 45 graphics and maps.

Included in the presentation is discussion of the following topics:

---Colonial life

---Puritan beliefs

---Calvin and Wycliffe

---Emphasis on the Bible

---History of Puritanism in England

---Travel to America

---Politics

---Ethics

---Plymouth Colony

---William Bradford and Plymouth Plantation

---The Mayflower and the pilgrims

---Relations with native Americans

---Establishing education

---John Smith

---Mary Rowlandson

---Religious writing

---Jonathon Edwards

---Edward Taylor

---Anne Bradstreet

---Western expansion

--Half-way covenant

---Ben Franklin

---End of the era with the Revolutionary War.

Included are literary excerpts to illustrate the atmosphere of Puritan America. Included are excerpts from:

---Plymouth Plantation

---The Captivity of Mary Rowlandson

---"Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"

---John Smith's journal

---Poetry by Taylor and Bradstreet.

---Fun for students are the excerpts from Franklin's almanac!

I use this to introduce a literary unit, but it would serve well as an introduction to a history unit.
