"Choosing the Right Word" today for vocab; We reviewed the "Text Analysis" handout terms with the poems, "Upon the Burning of My House," and by using the extended metaphor also known as a conceit by Edward Taylor, "Huswifery" on page 120 in the text.  We will have a test on THURSDAY on the Colonialists and the pieces from William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation, along with the poems by Anne Bradstreet and Edward Taylor as well as another piece we will be reading on Tues, by Jonathan Edwards, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God."
