This unit has been created with the teacher in mind. The material is geared toward senior students with a focus on the construction of arguments. It also teaches the importance of historical context as well as literary allusions in the development of themes.
I am a strong believer that when students work with a specific purpose in mind, they become better learners. That’s why my units contain only quality, worth-while activities. You will find no busy work here.
I’ve done all of the thinking for you. The lesson plans are detailed and comprehensive. The student guide is visually appealing and facilitates the teacher’s job. Also, the answer key is complete and detailed. All the teacher needs to do is to purchase this unit and photocopy it.
Take a look at the preview for more information.
