Task: Choose one theme that we discussed while reading the play and find three examples as to how this theme is shown.

There are several possibilities you can choose from to show the theme.

  1. Explain how the theme can be seen in all (or one with three examples) three definitions of a “crucible.”
  2. Explain how one character and his or her actions show the theme.
  3. Explain how three characters and their actions show the theme.
  4. Explain how the theme relates to McCarthyism.
  5. Explain the stylistic choices (irony, metaphors, etc.) Miller made, and how it best supports the theme.

If you are going on to take English Composition next year, the professor will ask you to write many essays like the fourth and fifth choices. Just something to think about.

Purpose: To accurately convey the main theme of the text, while supporting the theme with quotes.

Audience: A parent advisory committee who is questioning whether or not to keep The Crucible in classroom curriculum. They are looking for worthwhile themes and lessons in the text.
