Students are tasked with writing about the thematic purpose of the first act of The Crucible by Arthur Miller. The essay is designed to be completed in a 90 minute class period. Upperclassmen are asked to write at least 2 pages during that time, however it might also be given as a homework assignment.
The worksheet provides a checklist for students to ensure they are following proper essay conventions. I use a general 1-9 College Board rubric to score since I each AP and Pre-AP, however the checklist can be combined with a writing rubric of your choice.
