FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Two No-Prep Lesson Plans or Sub Plans for ‘Time Enough at Last,’ by Lynn Venable”

by Write with a Point
8th - 11th Grade

Lynn Venable's engaging short story, "Time Enough at Last," is a great addition to any unit. It pairs perfectly with Ray Bradbury's story, "There Will Come Soft Rains," and his most famous work, "Fahrenheit 451." Both authors were writing in the 1950s, and concerns over the atomic bomb found their way into these eery, important texts.

"Time Enough at Last" was also adapted by Rod Serling for his incredible show, "The Twilight Zone." What does that mean? It's a great way to compare a single subject in two different mediums—a common core standard that can easily be overlooked.

This freebie includes two free lesson plans for you to choose from: a thematic textual analysis and a character-based jigsaw activity. The strategies presented are engaging and adaptable. There's no prep work required. And either lesson would make a great emergency sub plan.

If you'd like, you can view the expanded versions of these plans on my blog. And you can find more free lesson plans at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
