This is an assignment that I use for my honors English class as we study The Scarlet Letter. The worksheet asks content and discussion questions that refer to Dan Qin's article from the Journal of Cambridge Studies (volume 5, issue 2-3), entitled "Pearl in Hawthorne's Romance The Scarlet Letter."
You can find online copy of the article here:
The worksheet consists of ten short answer questions that probe Qin's arguments in the novel. The worksheet also provides space for a one paragraph summary of Qin's claims and support.
