Character map

After having time on Friday to prewrite for today's assignment, students had the whole period to create a character map of the 16 main players in The Crucible. This is due at the beginning of class tomorrow - not five minutes into class, at the beginning of class. 

Tuesday 10/3/2017
Character maps/conflicts

Students shared and turned in their character maps. We did an activity that showed the effects of the affair on Abigail and John Proctor, and the negative impact particularly on Abigail as we investigated some of her character's motivation. Last, students were assigned to complete and turn in the three conflict charts at the bottom of the Act 2 reading guide.

Vocab Act 3/Quickwrite

I reviewed the definitions to the words remorseless, contentious, befuddled, qualm, and denounce, and students wrote original sentences using those words. We'll workshop the sentences tomorrow. I distributed two activities for Acts 3 - one for plot and one on characterization (absent students can pick this up on their return to class). And students completed a quickwrite/exit ticket (see Eng 11 bellwork and writing responses). No homework.

Thursday 10/5/2017
Vocab/read Act 3

After workshopping the vocab sentences from Act 3, we reviewed and students wrote original sentences for the words from Act 4. We started reading and listening to Act 3 - will finish tomorrow. 

Friday 10/6/2017
Finish Act 3

After finishing reading/listening to act 3, students worked on finishing three things, all due on Monday after break: the plot order handout, character faults handout, and all 15 reading guide Qs. You can listen to the audio version of the play here: http://yourenglishclass.com/the-crucible-audiobook/.

Act 3 Quiz/POV activity

Students had some time to review the events in act 3 of The Crucible before taking a quiz over the act. Afterwards, they were to begin the POV activity on their reading guide. This is to be finished for homework and is due tomorrow. 

Tuesday 10/17/2017
Vocab/review ch 3 activities

I reviewed the definitions of the five words from act 4 and students wrote original sentences for them. We'll workshop these tomorrow and then the quiz will be on the 10 words from acts 3 and 4 on THURSDAY. Students turned in their diary activity (on reading guide for ACt 3), and the plot order and character flaw activities. I shared the correct answers for the Crucible act 3 quiz and elaborated some to address questions on the reading guide (which I did not collect).

Wednesday 10/18/2017
Vocab. watch 2nd half of Crucible film

After workshopping the sentences for Act 4, we started watching the second half of the film adaptation of The Crucible. Vocab test Friday. 

Thursday 10/19/2017
Finish viewing The Crucible

I distributed viewing/study questions for act 4 (see Eng 11 class resources) of The Crucible and we finished watching the film. Students also got about 10 minutes in class to quiz partners in preparation for the vocab test tomorrow. They will complete the study question in class. Final exam on the play is on Monday. 

Friday 10/20/2017
Vocab Test/prep for Monday discussion and test

After students took the vocab test they had the rest of the period to write responses to the final discussion questions and to prepare for the final exam on Monday.
