We have been practicing the use of our BRUSH STROKES in class, but now we must move on.
The next book we are reading is THE CRUCIBLE, by Arthur Miller. He wrote this after being accused of communist tendencies in the 1950s. So this means that here in English class, we are going to study two aspects of this text:
We will be taking notes and discussing aspects of the 1950s during the next few days, then we will get into studying the 1690s and Puritanism. Whew! In-depth stuff! After you figure out how these pieces of history speak to each other, you should feel PROUD that you get it! Then you should be very careful as to avoid this behavior in the future.
Have a good night!
