Introduce Arthur Miller's The Crucible by having students use quotes from the play to make inferences about the characters before reading.
This resource introduces students to 12 main characters from the play by providing them with quotes said by the characters or about the characters. Students use this information to infer information about the characters using a 5-4-3-2-1 graphic organizer.
My students create their graphic organizers on easel paper and present to the class. We post the information on the walls and can refer to it as we read through the play. This activity also allows us to infer what some themes may be and I will include this in my discussions with the students as well.
If you want to use easel paper and markers, these are the only materials you will need in addition to what is in this file. Everything else is already included for you. No planning necessary.
