Transcript of The Crucible

The Crucible
The Way out
Intro
DO NOW...
Cite at least one example of fear/mass hysteria from each of the following:
History
Current Events
Lord of the Flies
'The Village'
HOW: Silently and Independently HOW LONG: 7 minutes
EXPECTATIONS...
Today we will 'unpack' The Village and discuss the roles of fear and mass hysteria in society.
WHAT: Discussion
HOW: Quietly & On-task
HOW LONG: 10 minutes
Savagery, insanity and murder: one would never think that “innocent” children were capable of such appalling things. In both Lord of the Flies and The Crucible, the authors wrote about children evolving into something “less human.”
Each society had potential in being successful, but both had major flaws. The biggest flaw in both of the societies was that they were controlled by fear; it drove them to the point of no return in which they would have never reached under normal circumstances. When the source causing people to act is fear, anything is possible.
The potential success in both societies (Lord of the Flies and The Crucible) eventually decayed and fell apart. There were struggles with good and evil in Salem and on the island that were the result of
fear
and
misuse of power
.
Base on their circumstances, Abigail from The Crucible and Ralph from Lord of the Flies wear masks to conceal their true identities and to fit into their societies for their own benefits. But Ralph wears his mask just to fit into society, whereas Abigail wears hers to save herself from harsh circumstances.
Why wear a mask?
Discuss...3 minutes
In Salem, anything unusual or different from the norm was seen as alien and sinful.
In Lord of the Flies, the beast was thought by most of the boys to live on the island. The beast was a combination of the pig, the paratrooper, and the boy's fear of the dark.
The Arbella was one of eleven ships carrying over a thousand Puritans to Massachusetts that year. It was the largest original venture ever attempted in the English New World. The passengers were determined to be a beacon for the rest of Europe, "A Modell of Christian Charity," in the words of the governor.
DO NOW...
"...we shall be as a city upon a hill..."
Reflect on the "good intentions" of the boys in Lord of the Flies as well as the elders in 'The Village.' What were their intentions?
How did they fall short?
HOW: Silently HOW LONG: 5 minutes
DO NOW...
EXPECTATIONS...
By the end of today SWBAT understand the setting and historical context of Arthur Miller's
The Crucible
.
WHAT: Discussion
HOW: Quietly and On-task
HOW LONG: 20 minutes
Throughout the 1940s and 1950s America was overwhelmed with concerns about the threat of communism growing in Eastern Europe and China. Capitalizing on those concerns, a young Senator named Joseph McCarthy made a public accusation that more than two hundred “card-carrying” communists had infiltrated the United States government.
INTRODUCTION...
This play is not history in the sense in which the word is used by the academic
historian. Dramatic purposes have sometimes required many characters to be fused into
one; the number of girls involved in the “crying-out” has been reduced; Abigail’s age
has been raised; while there were several judges of almost equal authority, I have
symbolized them all in Hathorne and Danforth. However, I believe that the reader will
discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in
human history. The fate of each character is exactly that of his historical model, and
there is no one in the drama who did not play a similar - and in some cases exactly the
same - role in history.

As for the characters of the persons, little is known about most of them excepting
what may be surmised from a few letters, the trial record, certain broadsides written at
the time, and references to their conduct in sources of varying reliability. They may
therefore be taken as creations of my own, drawn to the best of my ability in conformity
with their known behavior, except as indicated in the commentary I have written for this
text.
Act 1
REFLECT...
"So now they and their church found it necessary to deny any other sect its freedom, lest their New Jerusalem be defiled and corrupted by wrong and deceitful ideas."

What is the irony in that statement?
EXPECTATIONS...
By the end of today, SWBAT discuss the key events of Act 2 and correctly complete a viewing quiz.
WHAT: Act 2
HOW: Quietly & On-task
HOW LONG: 25 minutes
Our Troupe...
Tituba
Parris
Abigail
Susanna
Mrs. Putnam
Putnam
Mercy
Marry Warren
Betty
Proctor
Giles
Rebecca
Rev. Hale
DO NOW...
re·venge
riˈvenj
noun
the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands.
How could the Salem Witch Trials or McCarthy's "Red Scare" been a time of "great revenge?"

Reflect on the term "Wild Accusations" and be prepared to discuss.
DO NOW...
Compare/connect characters from Lord of the Flies to The Crucible...
HOW: Silently
HOW LONG: 5 minutes
Act 2
EXPECTATIONS...
WHAT: Reading Act 2
HOW: On-task
OUR ACTING TROUPE...
Elizabeth
Proctor
Mary Warren
Hale
Giles
Francis
Cheever
Herrick
DO NOW...
Predict how the “wild accusations” at the end of Act 1 will play out in Act 2.
Be sure to base your prediction(s) on what we know about mass hysteria from the Salem Witch Trials and McCarthy’s ‘Red Scare.’
1. Where does Elizabeth want John to go, and what does she want him to do there?
2. What is John's response to her prodding?
DO NOW...
Would you sacrifice your reputation by confessing to a crime you did not commit to avoid harsher punishment?
WHAT: Vocab Quiz
HOW: Silently & Independently
HOW LONG: 10 minutes
OUR ACTING TROUPE...
Elizabeth
Proctor
Mary Warren
Hale
Giles
Francis
Cheever
Herrick
6. Why does Elizabeth think Abigail wants to kill her?
7. Why did Hale come to Proctor's house?
8. What things are "suspicious" about Proctor and his family?
“What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Consider what life was like in Puritan times. Their government is a theocracy. Social standing is directly related to a person’s standing in the church. Discuss why some would “throw their reputation away” by confessing to witch craft versus others who would not confess to crimes they did not commit.
Create a status update for Abigail Williams based on the first 3 acts of Crucible.

HOW: Silently and Actively
HOW LONG: 30 minutes
After revealing the plan to the elders, Walker asserts that if they didn’t send Ivey, “We could never again call ourselves innocent.”
Yet, it seems hard to conceive of the elders as innocent up to this point. They are lying to the entire village and have contributed to the death of villagers when medicine was close. Furthermore, sending a blind girl into the woods hardly seems innocent; it is improbable she would return.
In light of the whole movie, can the elders ever truly call themselves innocent?
Shyamalan said that for The Village, he “wanted to write about innocence.” At the end of the movie are there any truly innocent figures remaining?
If Ivey continues the deception, can she still be considered morally good? Is Noah Percy innocent in his tabbing of Lucius Hunt because of his mental handicap?
Which is stronger, the individual or society?
Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria is the common term used to describe a situation in which various people all suffer from similar hysterical symptoms – either from a phantom illness or an inexplicable event. This list looks at ten of the most well known cases of Mass Hysteria – from the past and present.
GRAMMAR REVIEW...
In the following paragraph, identify and label all of the verbs (Action, Being, or Linking)

*Unsure of which is which? Refer back to your notes :)
ELEMENTS OF DRAMA...
(...abridged)
Dialogue tells us what the characters are saying and how they interact with each other.
Stage directions tell us (and instruct the actor) what the character is doing, feeling, and thinking. This allows the actor to adjust his/her performance to meet the intentions and vision of the director or playwright.
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE...
Be sure to jot down these definitions in your notes...
you may need them later
...
1. Using the
details
from the text, describe the setting as completely as you can.
2. How would you describe the mood of this excerpt?
3. Explain how the sensory details you found help to create this mood.

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay
, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.
We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

Don't be scared of the monsters, just look for them. Look to your left, to your right, under your bed, behind your dresser, in your closet but never look up, she hates being seen.
The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams.
I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06, I heard my closet door creak open.
