Product Description
The Crucible is full of dramatic exposition essential for students' understanding of the Puritan age and the history of the witch trials.

This activity helps them navigate that exposition.

This is 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.

Created with Word, editable

This is a great activity requiring close reading and use of various strategies.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.

I hope you'll visit my store to have a look at my other activities for The Crucible including

---a PowerPoint presentation introducing the Colonial Period and Puritanism,
---A Puritan Tabloid,
---"Induced Hysteria," a researched formal speech activity about the McCarthy era,
---"Dangerous Ideology," a group research/presentation about people and events in
history that began with good intentions but declined into corruption and tyranny
(especially enjoyed by students).
