Day 1 of jigsaw reading "Of Plymouth Plantation". Working in your small groups, you read through one of the 4 sections of text and annotated for content. You need to work in a group because the language is difficult and 4 brains are better than one. Talk it out and annotate the text by summarizing what Bradford is saying in your own words.
Then, choose 5 words that could summarize the text. Write a summary of your section using those five words.
Five-word summary due tomorrow.
