Using Mircrosoft 7, I have created an activity requiring students to read, analyze, and annotate the dramatic exposition in Act 1 of The Crucible. I duplicated those sections of the act so that students can highlight and write comments about the text on the handout. There are 63 tasks requiring students to identify allusions, define terms, and analyze plot and character. Students are also asked to paraphrase each paragraph on lines provided on the handout. I used a clear font. Text is spaced so students have room to write. This is a great activity requiring close reading and use of various strategies. Thank you for your consideration.
