Product Description
The Crucible is a dramatic re-enactment of the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts in the late 1600’s. Arthur Miller intended to use the Salem Witch Trials as an allegory about the anti-communist Red Scare and the congressional hearings of Sen. Joseph McCarthy going on in the United States at the time.

Included in this 21 slide PowerPoint unit are discussion slides on The Crucible's characters, as well as a plot line summary of the acts. Puritans in America and the descent into the Salem Witch Trials are discussed, as is the Red Scare of Joseph McCarthy and Arthur Miller's ties to the 1950's "witch-hunt". The presentation is designed to be used at the start of the novel reading as the base of discussion, but the teacher could also have students view the notes following the reading of certain chapters.

Have students explore the richness of Arthur Miller's characters and the astuteness of language the author famously used to portray history repeating itself. Ready to view today!
