This resource provides four prompts addressing the events and characters in Act 1 of The Crucible.
---One prompt addresses the opportunity that the people of Salem had to publicly air long-standing jealousy and accuse neighbors whom they disliked.
---The second prompt notes the possible reasons for Parris's outrage and concern over Betty's illness.
---The last two prompts question students' impressions of the Putnams and Reverend Hale and what each of these characters stand to gain during the trials.
I use clear font and include one simple graphic.
