Thinkfinity 2

An anticipation activity for The Crucible by Arthur Miller would be to have students first write in their journals a summary of a fairy tale they may remember when they were younger that included a witch. Then we would have a discussion about "witches" and determine whether they believe in witches. Talk about how one would go about identifying a witch.  Next, they would then research Miller and also the time period in which the Salem Witch Trials occurred.  The framework for this lesson can be found at:
