This is a websearch that has students using real research to answer questions about Arthur Miller and McCarthyism. The original assignment used various sites, but it's been changed to Wikipedia because the other links are all broken.
17 questions with 43 unique answers. This is the kind of assignment that makes students think they're discovering something cool about our country's past that other people probably don't know about. While that would be wrong, it might be interesting to compare post-911 America to Cold War America.
If you are either teaching Arthur Miller and his plays or Joseph McCarthy and his crusade, this is a nice assignment. If you are teaching the following plays, this would be great. ALL MY SONS, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, CRUCIBLE, THE MISFITS, A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, AFTER THE FALL, INCIDENT AT VICHY, THE PRICE, PLAYING FOR TIME, TIMEBENDS
