Dear Juniors,

What did you do today in class, Mrs. Crampton?

1. We had each group share information regarding their particular Puritan topic. This information was recorded on the goldenrod colored handout that you have in your notebook entitled "Introductory Information on The Crucible."

In addition, two clips were shared with the class concerning Senator Joseph McCarthy. This gentleman falsely accused 205 Americans of communism during the 1950's; consequently, these individuals lost their jobs and were "black listed" by their friends. DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? I have included an image of McCarthy below.

1. PLEASE review the information discussed in class today concerning Puritan culture. You will have a quiz over this information on MONDAY.
2. Keep reading your memoir.

Enjoy your weekend!
