Witchcraft: 1. Introduction: Religion, Superstition and Witchcraft.

Students start with Task 1, followed by a classroom discussion, just to get them thinking. Then, they place their worksheet face down on the table and I write this question on the board: “When was the last witch executed?”. Students turn their sheets back over, and a merit is awarded for the person who first shouts out the correct answer. Then, repeat with a second question: “Who wrote the 1590 book on witchcraft?”. Then, we read through the account together before proceeding to the main activity (a piece of display work).
