Artistic Response

Creatively Exploring Literature

Choice in Response

Throughout this unit you will be responding to The Crucible in various ways. It is your choice as to how you respond to the literature. I have two requirements:

  1. Cite the inspiration for your response using textual evidence from the book.
  2. Provide a paragraph explaining why you decided to create whatever it is that you create.


Of course, you can respond to literature in many different ways. The point of this response is to get you thinking about literature in the manner that best suits you!
