Today we are going to have a discussion thread based on Act 4 of The Crucible. I want you to respond to at least 2 others, make comments, using textual support, and I always want you to end with a question-intepretative or critical.
I do not want one word responses; I expect formal writing and intelligent thought showing your discerning observations and analysis. Please keep in mind the ideological statements and central questions as a means of helping you to analyze further. Fluency and conventions matter.
To start, please answer the following 3 questions; you must use textual support to back your response:
1. Who is to blame for what happened? Can the people of Salem's actions be excused by the cultural hysteria, or is it the individual's fault? Find evidence to support both sides.
2. As you read this act, what spoke to you the most or evoked the most emotion?
3. How does individual judgment play a role in this Act? Find one example and relay its significance.
When you finish, make sure you ask questions and begin responding to others. Textual support is mandatory!
