Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the events leading up to the Salem witch trials, the people involved, and the events themselves. Students will also learn about the cultural relevance of the witch trials.
I have taught extensively about the Salem witch trials as a high school teacher. I was also born in Salem and study the trials extensively. I have done a lot of research about the events, and have no problem teaching it in a sensitive way.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The Salem witch trials were historical events, involving violent deaths, wrongful persecution, and religion. There maybe possible triggers for some students. Images shown may be graphic, depicting violence. The content and discussion may be disturbing to students, therefore parental discretion is strongly advised.
