  • What preoccupied Americans during the 1940s and
    1950s? Record your answer in your notes.
  • Reread lines 1529 and use the information
    presented to define McCarthyism.
  • Does this paragraph explain McCarthyism
    objectively or does it take a position on the
    senator and his campaign?
  • Support your answer with evidence from the
    selection.

The Demons of Salem, With Us Still
  • According to the online article on page 217, how
    did Americans in the early 1950s feel about
    communism, and why?
  • Analyze What do the so-called Red Men- ace
    (line 4), reckless charges (lines 56),
    comsymps (line 6), and center ring (line14)
    suggest about Navaskys view of McCarthyism?
  • Synthesize If Navasky could have written during
    the McCarthy hearings, what do you think he would
    have urged people to do?

Timebends
  • HISTORICAL CONTEXT
  • Reread lines 117. What details indicate the
    significance for Miller of finding Starkeys book
  • As you have seen by reading these selections,
    politics, journalism, and literature can share
    ideas from a particular historical context.
  • One article provides information on the McCarthy
    hearings another addresses both the hearings and
    the writing of The Crucible. The third provides
    personal testimony from Miller himself.

    theme or idea that
  • runs through all three selections.
