Reading: Literature Standard 1

Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
  • Character Analysis and The Crucible
    This set of lessons extends over several weeks and incorporates all acts of Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. Students will closely read The Crucible. Students will cite textual evidence and make interpretations about character development.

    Students will combine the textual evidence with their interpretations and write interpretive statements. In the culminating activity, students will write a character analysis.
