This Power Point presentation is a perfect way to introduce the novel, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, to students. It helps provide students with all the necessary background knowledge they will need in order to best comprehend the novel. It includes information about England separate from the Roman Catholic Church, the Religious differences that followed, the Puritans and the persecutions they endured in England, thus leading to their pilgrimage to New England. It also includes the hypocrisy of the Puritans in regards to anything or anyone different--including the Quakers.
