LM Netters:

An English teacher at our high school is developing a lesson plan for "The 
Crucible." She has tried teaching her students about McCarthyism, but that era 
seems nearly as old and antiquated as the Salem Witch Trials. To help make the 
lesson more relevant, she's seeking current/modern news stories (i.e., within the 
last five years) that students can relate to and that contain the themes of false 
accusation or over-reaction. Ideally, news events that feature young people or take 
place in a high school would help drive the point home. Do you have any ideas or 

Many thanks!
