Today, students read "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" (pg. 85) by Jonathan Edwards. Students reflected on how the Puritan core beliefs were exemplified through this sermon. After reading, students worked on a handout. In this handout, students were to identify quotes that reflect each Puritan core belief in the acronym T.U.L.I.P. Students also identified the rhetorical strategies employed by Edwards and answered questions using their knowledge of the text and various literary devices.
