As we read The Crucible, we will post assignment handouts, class discussion documents, and useful sources to help you improve your understanding of the novel. Honors students are responsible for reading The Crucible over the summer - take notes on this play so that you are ready for class discussion and the test during the first few days of school.
If you forget your copy of The Crucible at school, you can read this electronic version of the text.
