They all starved??!! What went down in Colonial Virginia?( Let's discuss!)

  • Questions, comments, concerns?
  • Finding the Historical Context in Chapter 2: Bacon and Berkeley
    • Today we will focus on the first half of Hollitz's essay: Revolt on the Virginia Frontier AND Wooster's Friday class lecture on Colonial Virginia
    • So, what exactly should we all be getting out of the lecture and text, so far?
    • Let's figure it out together!
    • Break into groups of three! Each group will be assigned a specific box on the handout. Using your lecture notes on the "Virginia: Land of Profits" lecture, your task is to fill it out the appropriate information that you think helps best explain how the events in Virginia played out.
  • Your ticket out!


  • Some good news! Supplemental Instruction will be offered as part of your Triad C experience this semester!

  • Please make sure you have all of your research materials (access to database articles, Contending Voices text book, library books, etc.) for Ms. Bray's classes this week! You will need them to participate in class! (Hint: The writing you do this week will help you as you begin drafting your Rhetorical Analysis paper!)
    • On that note, as you begin drafting and would like some guidance, please feel free to stop by our office hours. We are glad to help you get started!
  • Speaking of drafting... next Monday Feb. 8th, you will need to bring a printed copy of your Rhetorical Analysis with you to Seminar. We will be doing a short, guided peer review for the first part of class! Be prepared. This counts toward your participation grade in Seminar and Comp!
