Write an essay that examines the similarities between The Glass Menagerie and A Raisin in the Sun. You may use of your previous research to help develop your analysis. As your central focus, choose one of the following topics or create one of your own: family structure, gender roles, parent-child relationships, social status, or the American dream. As you implement your research and work through your draft, be sure to develop an arguable thesis that makes a specific claim about how your topic plays out across both plays. RESEARCHING & IMPLEMENTING OUTSIDE SOURCES: You must incorporate at least 3 outside sources into your essay that you build upon and/or counter to help develop your ideas. Sources may be directly or indirectly related to the plays but must be academic in nature (e.g. articles found through library databases).
