Welcome back everyone!  I hope your break was great.  You will be surprised at how quickly these last couple of months will go, especially with graduation looming in the distance.  Be sure you are keeping up to date with your assignments as TERM 3 ends in a couple of weeks.

Today we began our study of The Crucible by Arthur Miller.  (although dismayed that so few of you are watching Smash, at least one person in each class knew that Arthur Miller was married to Marilyn Monroe) You have a 3-part pre-reading assignment – a copy can be found on the “Handouts” page.  You will have the three periods this week for research and then we will begin reading the play next week.

I think you will find both the setting of the play, and the allegorical setting of McCarthy Era USA to be interesting.  You can expect some blog commentaries during our reading of the play.
