A young mother with an out-of-wedlock child dares to face her accusers without shame. The Scarlet Letter is Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1850 novel of Hester Prynne, who has been branded as an adulteress in a small Puritan village of New England. Sentenced to wear a scarlet A as her badge of shame, Hester must endure the prejudice rampant in a 17th Century village of strict, mean-spirited townspeople. Defiantly refusing to disclose the identity of the father, in this excerpt Hester is led to the town square for public shaming.

This app provides a robust multimedia lesson centered on The Scarlet Letter (Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1850). Using this app, students can read an excerpt from Chapter II of the novel, view a video lesson modeling a student discussion of the text, and write a thoughtful response based on a writing prompt. Teachers may also allow students to participate in a peer review of their writing, with an accompanying rubric.
