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.
