Are you working on increasing student talk and higher-level thinking in your classroom? This pre-assessment for Puritan literature guides students through a reading of a challenging text from the time period ("Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" by Jonathan Edwards), then through crafting their own discussion questions. Finally, students will engage in discussion surrounding the text in a short Socratic seminar. The best part? The rubric is included AND the entire assessment is Common Core-aligned!
