This unit on the short story "Young Goodman Brown," by Nathaniel Hawthorne, serves as a fantastic introduction to the Puritan era or as an accompaniment to The Crucible or The Scarlet Letter. Included are vocabulary terms and a study key with detailed keys. Additionally, I have included a dramatic skit activity. Students are assigned groups and a section of the story and must re-enact the scene in the front of the classroom. There are specific and different instructions for each group.
