  • Based on what we have read so far about Tituba, what would her motivation be for “admitting” to Rev. Hale and Rev. Parris that she conjured up spirits? (Consider what the readers learn at the beginning of the play from Arthur Miller as well as what we witness at the end of Act I.

    2. Rev. Parris tries to deny the presence of witchcraft in his house and makes a decision to call Rev. Hale without letting his congregation know first. What is the motivation behind his denial and his decision to get Rev. Hale involved?

    3. What do we know about Abigail and her life experiences that may motivate her to accuse members of Salem of witchcraft?

    4. What is Rev. Parris’s motivation in dismissing the idea that Betty’s illness as “unnatural”? What is his motivation for pressuring Abigail to tell him what they did in the woods?
