Unit 4: Reading & comparing texts
Pair 5: The Crucible by Arthur Miller and Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks

Scenes and extracts of The Crucible and Year of Wonders are woven into an enriching performance that enables students to deepen their understanding of the ideas, issues and themes in both texts.

In this comprehensive analysis we explore authorial context and perspective, examine how fear and hysteria can divide and reshape communities, and compare and contrast individual and institutional responses to adversity.

This program has been developed using the paired texts, The Crucible by Arthur Miller and Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks, in consultation with Complete Works' Teacher Advisory Group.
