English III Students Read the Crucible

English III students were challenged to choose a character, and read the parts of that character, from the play “The Crucible.” This play consists of four acts. In this play, written by Arthur Miller, students are learning about what it was like to live in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692.

During this time period when people had many misfortunes, many people were accused of being witches, which was considered being evil. This hysteria lasted through the 17th century in the New England Colonies. As a result of this, tens of thousands of innocent people were executed during this time period. The students are now watching the movie “The Crucible” to compare and contrast it to the play.
