As a 3rd year teacher, new to this particular play, I am anxious to utilize this in my classroom. I praise the structure and cohesiveness of this unit. Thank you! --TeachersPayTeachers.com
Over the thirty-five years of my teaching, I have used a number of teacher manuals for teaching The Crucible. Mrs. Bowers' teaching guide on Miller's play is exceptional! --TeachersPayTeachers.com
Since I've never taught The Crucible, I found this guide invaluable. Although my instincts on how to teach the play are in line with Mrs. Bowers', I didn't have the time to prepare my own guide nor Mrs. Bowers' experience and stamina (smile). --TeachersPayTeachers.com
About the Author
Kristen Bowers is a former English teacher and the founder and President of Secondary Solutions. She has written over 15 books, including Literature Guides for Of Mice and Men, Brave New World, To Kill a Mockingbird, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and more, as well as two essay writing Guides: Essay Apprentice and Essay Architect. In 2005, Mrs. Bowers became frustrated and tired of writing her own worksheets, quizzes, tests, and activities to teach her students the required literature and the content standards on which her students were being tested at the district and state levels. At the time, resources and tools that were available for purchase were not up to her high standards of teaching, so she decided to create these materials herself.
Mrs. Bowers set to work to create one of the most comprehensive and innovative Literature Guide sets on the market. Joined by a middle school teacher with 21 years of secondary school experience, Secondary Solutions began, and has since matured into a specialized team of intermediate and secondary teachers who have developed a set of Literature and Writing Guides unsurpassed by all others.
