A creative way to determine your student's
understanding and appreciation of The Crucible.
This activity requires students to compose a final essay and provide personal reflection after completing class discussion of Arthur Miller's The Crucible.
There are three prompts from which to choose.
Each prompt has an analysis component followed by relevant reflection questions.
The topics of the prompts are:
----the development of Proctor's character and reflection on heroism,
----the townspeople's and judges' willingness to believe the accusations and a reflection on taking advantage of situations for one's personal gain, and the
----sacrifices that the characters make to restore social order with reflection questions about sacrifice and developing integrity.
Included with the prompts is the essay organizer that my students use to pre-write (a bonus!).
One graphic (a noose). Thank you for your consideration.
