This unit is created using the 1831 edition of the novel.
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 and worth-while activities. You will find no busy work here. Every lesson focuses on teaching students analytical and essay writing skills.
All of the thinking and planning is done for you. The lesson plans are detailed and comprehensive. The student guide is visually appealing, and so the teacher puts effort where it needs to be. The answer key is complete and detailed. All you need to do is to purchase this unit and photocopy it.
