Product Description
This two page worksheet follows along with the Salem Witch Trials video by the History Channel found here:


It may only be a basic comprehension worksheet, but it gave crucial background information to help my students better understand the historical context of the Crucible and how the story parallels the Salem Witch trials (as well as McCarthyism). I used it right after Act I, so that students were already aware of the characters and how they were portrayed.

There are no direct references to the Crucible in the sheet, so it can be used in a history class as well.
