New BC Curriculum: Don’t Become A Witch Just Because Of 9/11

Hey, Teach, um…who, exactly, is the “etc.”?

[National Post] Material: The Crucible by Arthur Miller “Some of this play’s themes [the dangers of rumours, fear mongering, and finger pointing] are certainly current today. The aftermath of September 11 is obviously still being felt. Blaming others out of fear and hysteria is an all-too-common reaction amongst people. One can see that any group can become the so-called ‘witches’ of the play: communists, terrorists, gays, Arabs, etc. Not understanding others or acting sanctimoniously or self-righteously will likely not bring about good will.”
