Juniors week of 11/6/17
We are reading The Crucible and continuing to address critical thinking skills in reading in a play format, character development, writing skills, as well as language, vocabulary, and listening skills. We continue to link this literary play to the historical event itself as well as to the McCarthy event in the 1950s that motivated the author to write the play. We are also evaluating how the hysteria of these two historical events could be replaying in today's world as it is linked to the social and political response to more recent events like 9-11 or current terrorist events as seen on news feeds...how has the emotional response of society to recent terrorist activity motivated change over the course of the student's life time? How is it continuing to do so?
We will complete Act II this week.
