Product Description
I absoultely ❤❤❤ The Crucible by Arthur Miller! It is my favorite piece of literature to teach! Students love it too! That is why I have just included pre and post activities in this bundle. Once we start reading, my students don't want to stop until the end!

Pre-reading activities include:
❶ A history video viewing guide that corresponds with Salem Witch Trials documentary from the History Channel with answer key.

❷ a handout where students determine which information is true, false, or simply opinionated about the history of the Salem Witch Trials with answer key.

Research task cards with topics pertaining to the history of the trials, and students research their particular topic, collaborate with others, and present findings to the class. It is important that students are familiar with the history of the trials before reading The Crucible play. This is a short task - not a long research lesson.

Post-reading activities include:
❹ A character brainstoring game that acts as review for the play and scaffolding for an essay. This game requires students to move, think, collaborate, write, and evaluate.

❹ Instructions for how to write an expository essay
