English 10: The Crucible Intro

We began the day with a little story time regarding McCarthyism/the Red Scare and the Salem Witch Trials. We even watched this clip from Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail (sixth hour will have to watch on Tuesday) to help envision just how absurd these hunts for witches were (communists too). You were then assigned one of the attached groups to complete only 1/5 of the webquest in the lab. (If you were absent, pick one group’s work to complete). Tomorrow, in the classroom, we will then share these out in groups, so you are able to obtain all of the necessary information. We will continue then with the introduction to the associated historical background for the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller. I will also give you a calendar tomorrow.

Remember, your Animal Farm essay is due by midnight to turnitin.com on Wednesday 11/12.
