Product Description
The witchcraft accusations get personal in the second act of
Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible.

This is a 6 page document containing 61 questions (some questions with questions within the questions) for students to complete while reading or discussing the second act of The Crucible.

There are questions requiring varying levels of higher order thinking.

Topics include:

---John and Elizabeth Proctor's relationship
---Mary Warren's report about court activities
---John's inner-conflict resulting from his adultery
----Reverend Hale's disassociation and defense of the court
---The poppet and the evidence against Elizabeth
----The arrests of Rebecca, Martha, and Elizabeth
---John's vow to bring his wife home
---Speculation on how John Proctor will approach the court

I use a clear font and provide space for students' responses.

I've included a few relevant graphics.

I have other activities for The Crucible including:

---An Act 1 activity similar to this one

---"Induced Hysteria," a formal speech assignment to introduce students to McCarthyism and a

---"Dangerous Ideology" activity that has students research other events in history where rigid ideology led to disaster.

---A Puritan Tabloid

Please visit my store for a look at those other activities to enhance instruction of
The Crucible.
