  • SAT Writing Prompt
    Plan and write a three paragraph essay based on the following prompt:
    In Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, Nora, a middle-class wife who struggles to find her identity, is confronted with what “defines” her. Responding to her husband, who has just told her that she is a wife and then a mother, Nora states, “I don’t believe in that anymore. I believe that, before all else, I’m a human being, no less than you-or anyway, I ought to try to become one. I know that the majority thinks you’re right, Torvald, and plenty of books agree with you, too. But I can’t go on believing what the majority says, or what’s written in books.” –An excerpt from A Doll’s House, 1879 (Vocabulary SAT Book 3, p. 108)
  • Assignment
