John Proctor's Identity Crisis!
After reading Act Four in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible students have to understand John Proctor as a dynamic character. Does Proctor pass his crucible? Does he finally redeem himself after that fatal mistake? Does he recover from his identity crisis?
Students will create John Proctor’s character using a magazine cutout figure. Then students will answer a series of questions to help them understand John Proctor as a tragic hero and his status as a dynamic character.
I allow my students to read the end of Act Four but also watch that pivotal moment on video as it just has to be watched for the full effect!
I hang their finished product on my class room walls and students are given a full understanding of John Proctor, which will be totally different from their first impressions of him in Act One!
