Students were tasked with examining the main antagonists of The Crucible by Arthur Miller. This prompt contains the essay question as well as essential essay planning organizers for students to think about larger ideas. A second organizer forces students to come up with a main idea for 3 body paragraphs and find quotes which they will discuss in the essay.
This essay prompt was given as homework, students were tasked with completing the organizers on the page. We discussed the organizer and ideas in class and they had the rest of the class period to work on their essays before taking the essay home to be finished.
I graded the essay on a 1-9 College Board rubric since it is a pre-AP course, however the essay can be graded on whatever rubric you prefer.
