“The Lottery” Prompt

Choose only one question to respond to. Be sure to restate or include the question in your response:

1. Sacrifice rituals operate on the principle of “scapegoating”. After defining the term, describe how the process of “The Lottery” uses the scapegoat and tell what end is desired. Are there any examples in our current society of using scapegoats?

2. “The Lottery” has been used to describe the emotions of people in medicine misdiagnosis cases. Draw the parallels between elements in each situation and describe how this can be true.
