What did we begin to explore in last lesson?
Can anyone tell me one of the drama techniques we used and how?
Ask pupils about how their characters felt about the witch hunt.

Task 1 – same groups as yesterday (lights on while performing)                              20 mins
       a) listen to Crucible audio tape to give example of language of the time –
           apply to their pieces
       b) Continue to rehearse scenes from yesterday – challenge pupils to put in
           drama techniques/explorative strategies.
       c) Teacher stops class – watch clip from Crucible – question why have I
           shown you this clip?
       d) Continue rehearsing – take what you have just seen apply to your

       lights to create atmosphere – were they serious was it done in a comic way? –
       think about feelings surrounding witchcraft at this time?
