Language Arts - Death of a Salesman Unit (No Prep)
This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two different options for end unit evaluations, which both contain evaluation grids and answer key.
The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.
The bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.)
The Student Guide has 16 pages:
-Notes on the American Dream
-An anticipation guide
-An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which will later on beused to relate to the play's themes.)
-Thematic comprehension questions for each act
-Activity on motifs and symbols used in the play
-Activity on characterization
-Poem association (Langston Hughes)
-Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)
-Review notes for students
Answer Key contains 29 pages:
-Answers to ALL of the students’ work
-Introduction to Arthur Miller
-Scene guide -Teacher’s comprehensive notes on the play (to help review and to fill students in on signifant symbols....)
-List of themes and how they are developed
Final evaluation contains two different options:
1) A unit test with answer key. Contains 3 essay type questions.
2) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.
BOTH EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS.
The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:
-Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.
Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading
Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)
Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading
Lesson 4: Character chart and reading
Lesson 5: Reading
Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy
Lesson 7: Theme development and review
Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)
It’ teaching made easy.
