Days 18 & 19!

Good morning!

In case you've missed the past few days, we have finished watching The Crucible!

Yesterday, we started on our project for this unit. If you're curious or forgot about what we are doing, we are writing an essay that explains how Miller (author of The Crucible) used the play as an allegory for McCarthyism.  Take a look at the essay assignment HERE. AND, if you're curious about the rubric, click HERE!

Today, you will  continue your background research and complete your graphic organizer (see page 2 of essay document). If you are a very efficient worker who is done with their research (way to go, by the way), you should begin writing your rough draft, which is due MONDAY!

See you soon!
