Tiger Topic

Mr. Scott’s eighth grade history class looked a little different yesterday as the students acted out cases from the colonial Puritan trials that took place in the 1630’s.

The students were given cases of crimes that range from breaking the Sabbath, gambling, and theft, to crimes such as immodesty, dancing and long hair.  These “trials” exposed the self-righteous behavior of the Puritans who chose to devise a rigid behavior code that few people could ever follow.  The irony is that convicted wrongdoers and dissenters were brutally punished imprisoned, fined, exiled or executed—which is exactly why these settlers left England in the first place.

Students were given parameters but were responsible for creating the whole scene, telling details of the accused, and then the judge(s)/magistrates handed out their punishment based on real life punishments of the time.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get
    that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual
    appeal. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet
    explorer. Outstanding Blog!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless
    imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images
    and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Good blog!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of
    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  19. Shirlee says:

    This web site certainly has all of the info I needed concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  20. Kian says:

    After I initially commented I appear to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for
    you? Plz reply as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to
    find out where u got this from. thanks a lot

  22. Theresa says:

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get the
    hang of it!

  23. Enriqueta says:

    I think that everything posted made a great deal
    of sense. But, what about this? suppose you typed a
    catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a title
    to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Tiger Topic – Enside
    EnsworthEnside Ensworth is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo’s
    front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get
    readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

  24. Manie says:

    Currently it seems like WordPress is the top blogging platform out there right
    now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    genuinely knows what they’re discussing on the net. You actually know how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More and more people must

    definitely have the gift.
