Finish presentations/Crucible themes

M.U.G. shot # 3 - see next page. After students finished their Crucible research presentations, we checked out the play from the bookstore. If you were absent Tuesday, you must go check out the play on your own time. I put a series of agree/disagree statements up that deal with key themes in The Crucible and we began discussing them. We'll continue this tomorrow.

Finish Crucible themes

I reviewed the reading guide for The Crucible and we finished our discussion of some of the major themes that will emerge in the play. 

Thursday 9/6/2018
Crucible overview/Puritan ethics

I shared a Prezi on the background of The Crucible (you can see it here: https://prezi.com/zj7o0c74ozeh/edit/#4_13256769), and we discussed which of the Puritan ethics are still relevant in our 21st century culture. More groundwork tomorrow and then we start reading!

Crucible vocab/start reading

I explained the first five words for Pt 1, Acts 1-2 (abomination to deference) and students wrote original sentences. I then distributed the character chart which students will complete as they read in order to keep track of the complex relationships among the Salem townspeople (esp. for testing purposes), Finally, students took speaking roles for Act 1, and we read the introduction by Arthur Miller (pgs 2-8)
