The Salem Witch Trials provide a perfect opportunity to connect English language arts and US history classes. Here's a resource that provides a wealth of essential questions, activities, and materials. Class groups assume the role of cold case investigators, develop a theory as to the cause of the witch hysteria, and then use concepts of American democracy to defend one of the victims. The richly detailed plan deserves a place in your curriculum library.
