9/18/15 Primary Source Packet due by end of class

In preparing to write our big thesis paper over the Salem Witch Trials, the students have watched documentaries, had class discussion over the Puritan religion/government, and have read through a packet of primary source documents. Along with those 10 documents, the students are assigned to ask questions (5 for each in social studies, 7 for each in challenge social studies). The questions should be thought-provoking, but do not need to necessarily have a definitive answer; they are to guide a class discussion next Monday and Tuesday in which the students will begin to narrow down what the topic of their thesis paper will be.
