After reading The Crucible, set up your own courtroom and work to figure out who in the play is to blame for the Salem Witch Trials.
Court trials are set up in a very similar format to argumentative essays. Using mock trials in your classroom can help your students learn the essentials of argumentation in an exciting new format.
Throughout this project, you will guide your students to analyze The Crucible in a mock trial, culminating in an argumentative essay based on the activity. Your students will be exposed to the American court system, practice argumentative writing, and practice evaluating textual evidence.
This Resource Includes:
- Teaching Guide with Instructions and Examples
- Courtroom Background Information (Definitions and FAQ's)
- Role List and Trial Schedule
- Role Descriptions and Responsibilities
- Trial/Essay Comparison Chart
- Argumentative Essay Sheet
