Joseph McCarthy = Abby Williams

Dear Juniors,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. We watched a clip from Good Night and Good Luck regarding Joseph McCarthy's attempt to defame Americans by accusing them of communism. Students completed some questions concerning the clip and then we discussed examples where "witch hunts" are seen today. If you missed class, you will need to rent the film and watch it on your own time. You are welcome to obtain the questions from me.

2. We then proceeded to take/correct the quiz for Act 3.

1. Students were given Article #2 entitled "Why I wrote the Crucible" by Arthur Miller. This "Article of the Week" is due on Monday, January 31st. Please annotate using RED and YELLOW!
