P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​roblem:
In the spring of 1638, Anne Hutchinson and her children left the Massachusetts Bay Colony, forced onto an island in Narragansett Bay near what is now Rhode Island. The year before, Hutchinson had been a highly respected church member in a Puritan church in Boston. But then she was put on trial and sentenced to banishment from the Massachusetts Bay colony and excommunicated from her church. What had Hutchinson done? Why was she such a threat to the Massachusetts Bay Colony?
Background:
Puritanism and Anne Hutchinson
Puritanism: a sect formed because they wished to purify English Protestantism by removing all traces of Catholic forms and ceremonies. Puritanism emphasized the Bible instead of tradition or reason as the chief source of authority, and their moral code was st​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​rict.
Anne Hutchinson stirred up the Antinomian controversy. This movement consists of those perceived as extremists who espoused a different version of the covenant of grace. Believed that having been assured of salvation, an individual was freed from the man-made laws of church and state. Taking commands only from God, who communicated his wishes directly to them.
Solution:
Had Hutchinson broken any laws? Were the political and religious authorities of Massachusetts Bay determined to get rid of Hutchinson, even if she had not broken any laws? Why?
Was Hutchinson a threat to the colony? Why? Remember to post your case study solutions on the discussion board.
Use a textbook, the above background material to formulate your response.

G​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​reat historical events often have deep effects upon the people who lived through them. Depending on the person and the situation, those effects can be very different – or not.
The Great Depression of the 1930s, in the United States, was one of these events. Lasting for nearly ten years, the Great Depression closed thousands of banks, put millions of people out of work, and seared itself into the memory of those who lived through it. The President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, responded by creating new government programs to help Americans, known as the New Deal.
Go to File and read “Stories of the Great Depression.” The story Diggin In by Robert J. Hastings and the poem Debt by Karen Hesse (I will upload it here soon). Then respond to these questions in essay format of 400-600 words using material from these sources.
We often think of historical e​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​vents as corporate – affecting everyone. But these experiences were lived by real people with real pain and real emotion.
1. What effect did the Great Depression have on individual Americans?
2. What was life like for children during this era and how do you believe their experiences during the Depression could have affected them in later life?
Sources: Robert J. Hastings, Diggin’ In, from A Nickel’s Worth of Skim Milk, Carbondale, Illinois: Southern Illinois University Press, 1986)
Karen Hesse, Debt, from Out of the Dust, Scholastic Books, 1999.
