English 3 - C Block

Due: 11/3 - 11/7

Running assignments:

1. Extra credit - Crucible character journals. Due Friday November 7

Assignment:

            You will create a journal in which you adopt the persona of a character from The Crucible. You may choose any major character from the play. Please do not choose a minor character. You will then analyze that character’s emotions, motivations, desires and fears, and you will write from the perspective of your character. Your vocabulary and syntax must be as authentic as possible. DO NOT use modern slang. Try and imitate Miller’s style.

Format/Guidelines:

            This project will be in the form of a diary or journal. Each entry should begin “Dear Diary” or “Dear Journal” and must contain at least 200 words. You will have 4 entries in total. The entries should go in sequential order. So, start your journals at the beginning of the play and work toward the end. Make your journal as authentic as possible. In addition, have a creative visual presentation. Remember the time period we are studying.  Make the look of your journals reflect that time period.

Grading:

            You will be graded on style, presentation, vocabulary use, knowledge of content, and depth of character. Do not just repeat the plot of the story. Really imagine how your character must be feeling throughout the play. Be insightful and imaginative. Dissect your character’s motives, actions, and speech. Be as creative as possible but make sure that the entries reflect who your character is. Allow the play to guide each entry.
