Product Description
This activity is an engaging, entertaining, and creative way to assess students' understanding of The Crucible.

This is a project that I assign after reading and discussing Act 3 of The Crucible; however, it can be used at any point after that.

The project begins with a brief discussion of how scandalous Proctor and Abby's affair would be to the citizens of Salem in 1692.

Following that is a discussion of how people in our society are intrigued by scandal and are drawn to tabloids that reveal the mishaps and misfortunes of celebrities.

I've included an excerpt that discusses tabloid circulation numbers and the transition from print media to TV and Internet as a source of rumor collection.

Students are assigned the task of creating a Puritan tabloid.

They must include title, headlines, and bylines.

They must discuss the events of Salem using Who, What, Where, Why, When, and How. (I provide a chart to help them organize their information.)

They must also include their speculation about the fall-out from the revelation of John and Abby's affair.

Students are asked to include three minor articles after reviewing the play through Act three including dramatic exposition and dialogue to determine topics (land-lust, working on the Sabbath, etc.)

Students are required to include graphics.

There are remarks about recognizing one's audience where students are told to maintain decorum suitable to Puritan sensibilities; maintain a tone in both words and graphics that is appropriate for a school assignment.

Students may submit page(s) or a poster.

I include a sample front page.

This assignment includes a grading rubric and graphics.

Clear font.

Could be used as a group project as well.

This is always successful in my classes.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
