|Option One: |
a journal entry from the perspective of a lusty pirate. What say you
to these stuffy Puritans? How is their Puritan lifestyle different from
your pirate lifestyle? No pirate journal would be complete without some
proper "pirate talk." Visit the Pirate
Glossary to discover some common pirate terms. Select at least five of these terms
in your entry. If you choose the pirate perspective, you must include
five terms a pirate would have used in day-to-day conversation.
|Option Two: |
Write your own journal entry from the perspective of a member of Bradford's colony. What do you think of these unruly pirates? What shocks you the most about these surly characters? How do the manners of the pirates differ from yours? Visit the Calvinism in New England Puritan Culture web site. This site will assist you in providing examples of Puritan culture.
