The Crucible
Character Journals


There is nothing like walking in someone else's shoes. Sometimes we must see an event from the prespective of another person to best understand what is happening.

Several times while reading The Crucible, each classmate will be asked to see the events through the eyes of one of the numerous characters of the play. Through the incorporation of Character Journals, we will "watch" events unfold, learn how each character must have felt, acted and possibly, reacted to the events.


Making Your Entries
Each journal entry MUST be follow the same format, but what you say about each of the elements of the entry should be drawn from the information learned during that day's reading in class.
