    My mix book was mainly on how if you don't do anything with
    your life the you're just gonna end up dead. "life's not meant to be
    still" says that if you're being still then you're going to be dead
    without doing anything or having any kind of impact. basically live a
    life that is worth living. I used a picture of a dead man laying in a
    crime scene to personalize death and to motivate people not to waste
    their lives and to do something with it.

    Discussion Question #6
    At first, the motivation started with the whole "witch" thing. The citizens then fed the fire with all of the accusations and rumors & lies which truly spread to made a huge crisis. The "he said, she said" stuff is what really fueled the citizens into this mess however what the characters truly cared about was what each of them thought of themselves. Take example- each citizen wants to be seen as innocent, holy, and modest however the dishonestly is what gets the people get caught up in. I don't think it's denial really, just the fact that everyone is pressured to be just right.

    Discussion Question #3
    It is difficult to tell by just words the relationship between the characters. Imagery does have a key play into whether or not the characters are either friends or enemies however it is usually best to tell with the lines not said in the play such as: smiling,frowning,laughing,remorsing, etc. Body language and facial expressions are key to when it comes to determing the relationships between the characters throughout the play. As well as facial expressions, tone or music can also set the "mood" of the play. The tone or mood determines the relationships between the group as a whole as opposed to specifically between two people.

    Discussion Question #1
    Throughout the entire play, you either have people who are completely ubsessed with the fact that there are witches and devils however on the other end, there are those who do not believe in anything at all. Several characters are also what we call "two-faced" and act one way towards one and entirely opposite to another; such as when Abigail is completely innocent to the court and to Hale however on the other hand, she has an affair with Elizabeth's husband and dances around doing a "witch dance". An example of two different individuals when one person completely encourages the existence of devils and witch vs. non-believers is Elizabeth and her husband. Elizabeth completely disregards all the witch-talk and John is all for it.

    Discussion Question #4
    I did read Act 2, Scene 2 where it was supposed to be put in the play and it changed my opinion and view on Proctor and Abigail completly. I went into Act 3 with a stronger view poing about them. It also made it more clear to the reader what the author was trying to get across with how he wants the reader to view the characters. It shows that Abigail was actually insane and lying about what she has been doing, but on the other hand it makes Proctor seem more real and truthful.

    Discussion Question #6
    I think that the events in the play were motivated by a desire to be seen as perfect and righteous by the town's people. In the beginning of the play Rev. Parris doesn't want to say that what is affecting the town is witchcraft because he fears it will reflect badly on him. Then by the end of the play he is supporting the court and the entire thing. It's because the towns views of what would be the best and most christian thing to do had changed. In the beginning it was about the normal everyday religious process. Whoever went to church more and read the bible more was the best christian. The town's people each want to be the best christian and so, when the idea of what it means to be the best christian starts to change because of the witchcraft, the town's people act accordingly and to the extreme in every area possible. The cause of all the problems was no the girls or even the witchcraft, it was the simple desire of the town's people to be the best.

    Discussion Question #3
    The play is able to show how each character interacts. If they are comfotable in their enviornment, if they're awkward around certain people. Body language and facial expressions would also help the crowd decifer feelings among the characters. There are many ways to show relationships other than just saying it. A son talking to his mother might call her mom, same with uncle, pastor etc.
