In his explanation of why he wrote The Crucible, Miller explains the social commentary behind the play. You will be tasked with creating a similar social commentary in the format of play, but first, I want you to select a topic of social commentary and explore that topic. You must:
- Identify an issue that you think must be addressed in our society. This can be a local, national, or global issue.
- Explain what is happening on this topic. You may need to do some research to explain fully.
- Explain your criticism of the problem.
- Why is this a problem that must be addressed?
- Why isn’t it being addressed better in society?
- How can making more people aware of the problem help?
