Product Description
The motivation behind the mass hysteria during the Salem Witch Trials as portrayed in Arthur Miller's The Crucible seems far- fetched and unbelievable. Using video, discussion, class participation, and writing, this lesson aims to personalize the sentiments of the villagers for the students so they understand this hysteria.

Your students will find it enjoyable! Mine did! Their reflective writing at the end expressed a new found understanding of the emotional climate of Salem and situations like it.
