Each group member has a vital role in the development of the final project–the newspaper. As you complete this assignment, go through the steps and click on the resources to help you gather sufficient information for your articles.

Here are the first three steps:

STEP ONE: First, you’ll be assigned to a team of 3 students. One of you will write about the judicial system during 1692, one will write about the Puritan religion, and one will write about the witch hysteria. Among your group members, you will decide who will write about what.

STEP TWO: Once you’ve decided on each group member’s topic, you will watch the following video together. While viewing, you should take notes on information that you think is relevant to your specific topic. For example, if you are writing about the judicial system, you might want to write in your notes that everyone involved thought that they were “doing the right thing” and had good intentions.

  • Video on the Salem witch trials.

  • Download and print (or copy and paste into a Google Doc) the Video Notes to help you while watching the video.

STEP THREE: After viewing the video, you will click on your role to obtain resources for your topic.
