Presentation Transcript

  1. Crucible Bellringer #1 8/10/12 • List two facts you learned about the Puritans from yesterday’s notes. • List two facts you learned about the Salem Witch Trials from yesterday’s notes. Today’s Target: I can describe the historical context of The Crucible.

  2. The Crucible Bellringer # 2 8-13-12 Directions: Use your notes over the Salem Witch Trials and what you learned from Friday’s video to answer the following questions. • What event started the suspicion that there were witches in Salem? • With what type of evidence were witches convicted? • What is the only way to avoid execution? Why is this ironic? Today’s Target: I can describe the historical context of The Crucible.

  3. The Crucible Bellringer #3 8-14-12 Directions: Use your notes from yesterday to help you answer these questions. • Who is the author (playwright) of The Crucible? • What was the author’s purpose in writing The Crucible? • Why do you think the playwright called this play The Crucible? Today’s Target: I can describe the historical context of The Crucible.

  4. The Crucible Bellringer #4 8-15-12 Pick up a literature book on your way to your seat. Directions: Use your character chart and your annotations from yesterday to help you complete these questions. • Who is the protagonist of the play? • Who is the antagonist of the play? • Which character is mainly concerned with his/her reputation? Today’s Target: I can compare and contrast what is directly stated in a text according to its implied or inferred meaning.

  5. The Crucible Bellringer #58-16-12 • What is Reverend Parriss upset at the beginning of the play? • TRUE or FALSE: Abigail believes Betty is witched at this point in the play. • Why does Abigail threaten the girls? Today’s Target: I can compare and contrast what is directly stated in a text according to its implied or inferred meaning.

  6. The Crucible Bellringer #6 8-17-12 • In what ways does Abigail try to get John Proctor back in Act I? • What does the lengthy fight the adults have demonstrate about the town of Salem? • Give an example of something Rebecca Nurse said in Act I that demonstrates that she is the voice of reason. • Why do you think Abigail accuses Tituba of witchcraft? • At the end of the act, why do you think Abigail now claims witchcraft is real? Today’s Target: I can make inferences about characters and their motivations.
