The Crucible and other Witch Hunts

     This WebQuest will help you gain a better understanding of The Crucible.  Miller wrote the play in response to McCarthy's witch hunts of the 1950s.  In order to do so, he had to learn about 1692 Salem and what actually happened.  From there he took "artistic liberties" in dramatizing some situations to create a better piece of literature. 
     You will research what Miller went through in the McCarthy era and discover the differences between what you read in The Crucible and what actually happened in 1692 Salem.  Lastly, you will put it all together and draw comparisons between each situation.
