The Salem Witch Trials, Video Notes & Connection to The Crucible
This resource was created from the "In Search of History: The Salem Witch Trials" documentary from the History Channel.
This video is available on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Youtube. Youtube link is provided within this clickable document.
Students in my class watch this video and complete this worksheet every year in preparation for the play, The Crucible in order to gain sufficient background knowledge about Puritans, theocracies, and why people had such paranoia and hysteria about witches. Answer key also included as a quick reference for educators.
