We finished reading Act II and the appendix (148), focusing on evidence that could be used for two arguments:  Accusing or defending the Proctors of witchcraft OR proving that Abigail is a villain or a victim.  We went over the aspects and vocabulary used in arguments.

Next class, we will be writing the argument (3 paragraphs) before starting Act III.
