Objectives of the Lesson:
Students will interpret a quote from John Davenport about why he wanted to move to New Haven.
Students will describe the difference between agricultural and commercial. Describe the difference between coastal and rural. How they are similar and different.
As the families get ready to take their leave of the friends they made in Salem Students hear the following quote John Davenport gave to his friends and colleagues in Salem who wanted him to stay:
"that most of them were Londoners, who were not so well fitted for an
agricultural, as for a commercial settlement: which they thought might be
formed with better prospects at Quinnipiac than any other unoccupied place on the
Bay." (M'Clure p.274)
They will interpret that quote and record in their journal what it means to be agricultural and commercial.
