This is a lengthy Power Point on the background of Puritanism, The Salem Witch Trials, and the life of Arthur Miller. It is intended to introduce the events in Miller's, The Crucible. There is a video clip of Monty Python's "Witch-Burning" scene from The Holy Grail. Hopefully you all get it to work. Remember to tell the kids that it is a joke, not actually a technique for testing for witches. Study Guide for The Crucible is also available.
