Puritan Times

This week I had some fun at school - Mr. D was holding his Puritan Court in Social Studies, so I teamed up to help the students write their cases. I also dressed up one day as Anne Bradstreet, and told the students about America's First Published Author... We read the poem "An Author to Her Book" and discussed her situation during Puritan Times. It was an interesting class - some kids knew a lot about what it meant to be Puritan and most classes were pretty active in the discussion - especially since I surprised them with the costume & all.

Anyways, it was fun for ME! :)
