Product Description

This adapted article introduces students to McCarthyism and the political climate during the 1950s, when Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible. The information covers pre-1950s post-war history that sets the stage for McCarthy's rise to power capitalizing on the fear during that decade. Then, the article covers the consequences of the "witch hunt" and the connections to The Crucible.

This assignment is six pages and includes an answer key on the back. Annotation is a key focus, and it is a separate grade with an explanation on the front. This assignment includes multiple choice, modeled after Virginia's SOL questions, and several short answer questions, which require in-text details and a text-text connection at the end of the article.
