Product Description

An insightful, educational overview of the communist scare gripping America as it heads into the McCarthy Era of the 1950's.

Students begin with an overview of religious Puritan values and their psychological effects on the human psyche before transitioning to a succinct but engaging exploration of the anti-communist propaganda exported by Hollywood following World War 2. Students close with a biographical overview of Arthur Miller to understand his motivation to write The Crucible, and engage in whole-group discussion tied to the moral and ethical themes highlighted within the play itself.
