Moving From Known (Old) Information to Unknown (New) Information
Review the following passage. Identify the known information and the new information in each sentence by underlining both types of information and tying them together with an arrow.
The Puritans left England in a time of religious persecution and fled to a country they believed would offer the freedom to worship as they liked. The irony in this situation is that they denied others that same liberty. William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation offers insight into the struggles faced by the Pilgrims while they tried to sustain a community based on Puritan piety. Bradford shows the colony's demise through the citizens' adherence to a moral and religious code.
