Product Description

Teach Miller's The Crucible from beginning to end with challenging, creative, and real-world activities. You will not find activities for this play like these ANYWHERE else! The resources in this literature guide for The Crucible are creative and up-to-date, rigorous yet fun, easy prep, and organized to make your job easier.

Student Experience: From the active reading graphic organizers with QR links to videos where students can hear from Miller himself to the modern witch hunt short research project to the paired poetry with Anne Bradstreet's "Upon the Burning of our House" to reading about a modern hysteria, this unit plan will take your students deep into the text and beyond. It's perfect for discussing themes such as bullying, stereotyping, hysteria, love, and revenge with modern teens. At the same, it's rich for analyzing theme, conflict, irony, character development, and allegory -- all key skills for any language arts classroom. There is so much variety here. Kids love the task cards. You will love the quizzes and worksheets to make sure your students are reading. Your admin will love that it’s Common Core aligned and allows for differentiation.

Classroom success stories from other teachers who have loved this resource:

♥ "This is a great resource for The Crucible. It is organized well for a day by day plan, and is easily restructured for alternative schedules (I only see my students every other day). My students are enjoying the lessons."

♥ "I have never taught The Crucible before, and I did not know I would have to teach it this year, so I was completely unprepared. I have asked my colleagues for their lessons/units, but their resources were pretty basic - read the text and answer questions about it. This unit has a variety of activities which will make reading more fun for my students. This is also my first purchase on TpT, and this unit is absolutely worth it! :-)"

♥ "This is an EXCELLENT resource! I love the creativity & design of the worksheets. They aren't "boring" to look at & make the assignments fun. "

♥ "Another AWESOME unit from Ms. Faulkner. Saved me lots of time and helped me get my 11th graders excited about the play."

♥ "Everything you need to teach the play, this was a great resource that I used my first year teaching. My unit has since grown and modified as I have taught, but this will be good for anyone who needs a solid unit. "

♥ "After purchasing her Fahrenheit 451 unit I purchased this unit too, and it did not disappoint! There are so many activities that you can do with you students. My students LOVED the reader's theatre activities in every act where I let them dress up and really play the part. "

♥ "I looked through dozens of plans and units and didn't find any that seemed as thorough and varied as yours. I can't wait to use some of your unit and will let you know how it goes. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work!"
