This little bundle is an eight-slide Powerpoint with five pdf's featuring the best of Puritan writing. First part features the alleged "Diary of a Puritan Maiden" also known as Hetty Shepard's Diary. It is the few pages in the journal of day on the life of a Puritan Girl. But many were fooled and it's actually a piece written in the late 1800's that fooled many academics. Article by Professor Norton is included. Students read it and then review it for suspicious details. The second part of the presentation is a reading assignment of "The Human Side of Puritan Literature" an English Journal article that discusses the more interesting pieces written during this time (Bradsteet, Edwards, Taylor) and includes Samuel Sewall's diary where he tries to woo a widow. (I've also left in quirky medical facts and vocabulary inference questions)
