“Witch Hunts” Introducing our new unit on ‘The Crucible’

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:

  1. Consider the changing historical, cultural and social contexts in which particular texts are written and received
  2. 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!
