Product Description
Get your students critically thinking during the first scene between Abigail Williams and John Proctor in Act 1 of Arthur Miller's The Crucible. Students tend to really enjoy this scene just because it is so full of tension and awkwardness as Abby and John discuss their affair. Instead of analyzing the dialogue, have your students focus on the stage directions in order to better understand Miller's choices as a playwright. Stage directions are often overlooked, but they are absolutely full of characterization clues. After this analysis, students will be better able to understand Abby and John's relationship, which is essential to characterization and plot.

This analysis activity is comprised of two parts:
-A graphic organizer that requires students to cite and analyze stage directions
-A few fun (but valuable) questions that require students to summarize the relationship using "Facebook statuses", predict how the relationship will affect the play, and explain their opinion of the characters thus far.
