For this activity, students look at different quotes throughout the second act in order to determine if they feel Proctor is noble. The perfect scaffolding for analyzing Proctor as a tragic hero after they have finished the play.
The worksheet is four pages long and includes five quotes from act two and one quote from act one to use as an example. The quotes and events chosen for the worksheet were chosen based on their ambiguity. Students will need to analyze the quotes themselves and the context surrounding each quote in order to determine Proctor's nobility. Once they have determined nobility, they will need to support their answer with details from the text.
A sample answer sheet is provided, but this assignment does not necessarily have any absolute right or wrong answers.
