This week we began our exploration of Arthur Miller’s text, ‘The Crucible.’
This unit continues our work on part 3 of the IBO DP language and literature course, entitled ‘Literature: texts and contexts.’
We will use this unit to continue working toward two of the learning outcomes for this part of the course:
- Consider the changing historical, cultural and social contexts in which particular texts are written and received
- Understand the attitudes and values expressed by literary texts and their impact on readers.
Of key importance are the following literary devices / concepts: allegory, roman e clef, parable, context (production and interpretation).
We hope you enjoy the unit!
