You already have your thesis statement that has your theme and your three texts that you plan on writing about. Now you’ll need to write topic sentences for your three body paragraphs. Each topic sentence will be about one of your texts and should include:
Thesis: The commitment to education which is apparent in two classic American texts, William Bradford’s Of Plymouth Plantation and Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, would serve the colonists well and help to shape America’s emerging identity over the years ahead.
Topic Sentence 1: In Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford demonstrates that many of the Pilgrims were already quite well educated, especially in the areas of religion and philosophy.
