Dear Juniors,

I have included the body paragraph for you below that we wrote in relationship to the "hysteria theme topic." I hope this helps.

2. We started reading ACT 3

In Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible, many universal and relevant themes exist. One such theme pertains to the topic of hysteria. Hysteria enables the people of Salem to view illogical behavior as acceptable, in that their neighbors,  whom they have always considered upstanding citizens, are now committing absurd and unbelievable crimes, such as killing babies and consorting with the devil. The characters of Samuel Parris, Mary Warren, and Abigail Williams accept and become actively involved in the hysterical climate, because it gives them the power to act on grudges and repressed feeling

1. Article #4 entitled "Paying the Price for her Silence" is due on FRIDAY!
2. We changed the due date for "DESK TOP TEACHING" to Wednesday, January 8th!
3. Remember that the final 1/3 for your memoir text is due on the 19th
