There are two activities in this pack to introduce your students to the events of the Salem Witch Trials, to supplement your Crucible or American History lesson, as an emergency sub plan, or even for a quick Halloween lesson. They can be used consecutively or independently.
Student Experience: As students watch the documentary, the questions included on the viewing guide hold students accountable for the material they see in the documentary. I’ve provided a short answer version of the questions and a multiple choice version as well. Following the documentary, students will examine the stories of victims of the Salem Witch Trials and write a eulogy.

Classroom success stories from other teachers who have loved this resource:
♥ "I loved that this one asks students to think about the material but isn't so invasive that they feel they are just answering questions without an opportunity to actually enjoy the information. Loved the layout and the alternative format--can be used as a formative assessment, admit slip, or review!"
♥ "GREAT resource! You can use it in class, or leave it for a sub. Directions for a sub are included! I love the questions - they're not just on a page numbered 1, 2, 3, etc, but are very creatively placed on the page. As if that's not enough, a quiz is also included. Very nice!"
♥ "Great activity for assessment for understanding after reading the play! Very comprehensive and easy to follow for students. Also great for sub work!"
♥ "This caught my students' attention. I love all of your work. Thank you for the time and effort put into each one--it shows."
