Week 4, Day 2
Objective: understand cultural background to literary texts, grade level vocabulary, and listening for understanding; revising and editing

  1. Bell Work: Open your American Literature Timeline
    1. In the right hand column, summarize the three origin myths that you read last week.  Tell me how they are origin myths, what the overall theme is for them, and how archetypes are used.  This is what the right hand column will be used for.  
  2. Now we are going to move on to Puritan/Colonial Literature.  We won't read very many poems in this class, but that is what we are reading for this section.  A few reminders about Puritan/Colonial Literature: they really only cared about work and prayer.  Fun was not allowed.  It was looked down upon.  They were very devout in their beliefs and religion and anything that could be considered 'fun' was a threat to their focus on God.  Very rarely did the Puritans express their emotions.  That is something that makes this poem very strange for Puritan Literature.
