Product Description
Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible to draw parallels between the horrors of the Salem Witch Trials and the fearmongering during Joseph McCarthy’s hunt for Communists in the US in the 1950’s.

The movie, Good Night, and Good Luck, details Edward R. Murrow’s pursuit of justice for those falsely accused, unfairly prosecuted, and sadly convicted of crimes for which they were innocent.

This movie guide prompts students to identify the parallels between the two historical events proving Miller’s play to be an accurate analogy.

The first page of this resource provides a summary of the plotline of the movie and a review of Arthur Miller’s motivation for writing The Crucible.

The second page is a list of parallels between McCarthy’s Trials and The Crucible.

Page 3 provides photos of the actors in their roles, their names, and identification of their position. Also on this page are four poignant quotes by Edward R. Murrow, some spoken in the movie.

On the next two pages are twenty questions for kids to answer during or after watching the film. There is space provided for their responses.

Finally, the last three pages provide the key to the students’ questions and additional notes for clarification.

I use a clear font and provide several relevant graphics.

My students respond well to this activity.

The award-winning movie is engaging and sustains their attention.

They clearly see the analogy between the McCarthy hearings and the witch trials and appreciate the artistry of Arthur Miller.
