Product Description
The 2010 film Easy A, starring Emma Stone, is a modern re-telling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. In the film, a young woman pretends to lose her virginity and experiences public shame and ostracization, much like Hester Prynne. The movie puts a modern spin on Hawthorne's central conflict and his strong female protagonist.

This prompt contains a very specific format. The novel falls quite early in my curriculum. As such, I'm still working students towards developing specific, analytic essays.

As such, this essay prompt is designed to help students develop an engaging introduction and explicit thesis and specific, detailed support.

PLEASE NOTE: The film is rated PG-13. It contains a great deal of sexual innuendo and questionable language. Please be sure to preview the film before showing it to your class.
