Scarlet Letter "sin" task
This is an activity for students to complete after reading the novel. It asks them to think of a modern "sin," creating a letter to wear for that "sin" (example: G for gossip, or T for texting), and take the document to each class for teacher signatures. Since the release of the film "Easy A," students may be more familiar with the idea of transferring Hawthorne's ideas into modern settings.
