Puritanism in colonial New England was a way of life that had a profound effect on the shaping of later American culture and self-identity. Unfortunately, too few Americans understand this complex society which impacts us to this day for good as well as for ill. This balanced, in-depth study of New England Puritanism will provide educators with thematic strands from the National Social Science Curriculum Standards that deal with culture, time/continuity/change, people/places/ environment, individuals/groups/institutions, power/authority/governance, production/distribution/consumption, civic ideals and practices. This course offers travel and non-travel option.

NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.
