Dramatic Irony- I know something you don't know...

  If you were here today you know we watched a short video. It's from you-tube so you won't be able to view it again at school, but if you are at home you can take another look. 
(Insert big lecture about why smoking is very bad for you and the people you love.)

The point of watching that was to learn about dramatic irony.  Dramatic irony, as we discovered in class, is when the audience knows something that one of the characters does not. In this case the woman did not know that the can belonged to the man and the man did not know what she put in the can.

We are looking for examples of dramatic irony in The Crucible, especially in Act III.
And you have homework, so be sure to check the homework link on the right.
