Crucible Social Commentary Response

Explain how The Crucible is a social commentary of Miller and Smith’s time by including details from your own original research on McCarthyism and both texts to support your thinking. Be sure to:

  • Provide a clear connection between The Crucible and the social commentary of the time.

  • Develop the topic thoroughly by selecting the most significant and relevant details.

  • Vary syntactic structure by including clearly state claims and complex sentences with embedded quotations. Sentences should have varied beginnings as well.

  • Complete and include some original research on McCarthyism!

Goal is to demonstrate an understanding of how The Crucible is a criticism of McCarthy’s hunt for communism

Exemplary Work will write effectively, using a variety of sentence structures, selecting and exploring thoughtful details, and using direct quotations from sources that include their own research.
