    Write an argumentative essay arguing your claim to the following prompt/question.

     

    Prompt: Which character in the play, The Crucible, is the most resposible for the witch trials and the hanging of innocent people? 

     

    Your essay should be 600 to 700 words and include an intordution, a body, and a conclusion. 

     

    I will look for a strong thesis statement with a claim and two or more points. I will look for examples to prove your points in the body. I will also look for a counterclaim and a refutation. 

     

    I want to see your points from your thesis statement restated in a fresh, new way in your conclusion.
