  • Chief Metacomet – broke the treaty; “King Philip’s War” – (Colonists called Metacomet “King Philip” because of the association with the evil ruler King Philip)

  • Wampanoag Indians started capturing colonists for ransom for food because they had been pushed off of their hunting grounds by the colonists; They had originally “sold” those grounds, however, they didn’t realize the colonists didn’t allow them to hunt

  • Mary Rowlandson was wife of minister of Lancaster

  • She was in captivity for June-August; she died two years later

  • Attributed everything still to God’s blessing

  • Mary’s child died – 6 ½ years old, daughter, weakness/wound, starving (Sarah)

  • She got lost on her first try to go see him; only a mile away; Indians helped her get “back”; King Philip pointed her in the right direction

  • She was a tailor – she would knit shirts, caps; Indians would pay her in food (bear, horse, peas)

  • She still maintains her faith – even though she’s starving

  • The English army starts chasing the Indians – so the Indians have to flee; cross a river, and Mary’s foot does not get wet (attributes that to a blessing)

Mugs review

MUGS Review

  • Looking at all the corrections we’ve made on Sets 1 and 2, what are some punctuation “rules” we’ve encountered?

    • Use a comma when you need to pause

    • Y changes to I when you make something past tense (marry ---married)

    • “An” goes before a word that starts with a vowel (An Apple)

    • Use hyphens to join words that are one thought

    • Underline movie titles, book titles, newspaper titles

    • Quotation marks are for SHORT works (poems, short stories, one article in a newspaper)

    • Apostrophes for possession (dog’s collar) and contractions (It’s raining – it is; that’s – that is)

    • Colons: right before a list

    • Semi-colons – between complete thoughts (substitute semi-colons where there are periods) ;

    • Use commas in lists (tea, spices, and fabrics)

    • Introduction phrases (As a matter of fact, In the 1960s, Throughout history,) have commas after them

    • Interrupter phrases (Pocahontas, a Disney movie,) are surrounded by commas

    • Use commas when joining sentences with and, but, or (conjunctions)

    • Exclamation points for dramatic phrases/sentences

    • Commas between two descriptive words (adjectives) (finest, funniest movies; determined, courageous believer)

    • There: location, Their: shows possession, They’re: They are


Pg 42 43 literature and history

Pg. 42-43 “Literature and History”

  • Text box: “Captivity Narratives”

  • Narratives intensified the negative relationships between N.A. and E.

  • “Shock and Awe” sells!


Take note

Take NOTE:

  • Literary Term:

    • Allusion: a reference to something literary, mythological, or historical that the author assumes the reader will know

    • In Rowlandson’s narrative, she makes multiple allusions to Bible stories, comparing her situation to those she has read about in the Bible.
