I found the "daily" lesson plans to be vague and lack detail. The writing prompts are sufficient, but overall, the unit seems very elementary for this novel and for grades 11 and 12.
On  April 10, 2012Connie answered:
Goodness. I am sorry that you feel the unit was lacking in depth. I felt that the various writing prompts and all of the worksheets offered a good study of existentialism and analyzed the novel creatively and pretty thoroughly. Can you give me some ideas of what you would like to have seen? I would love to address these issue and add them to the unit. Because of the many worksheets, I like to give teachers a variety of choices so they can meet their students' particular needs; that's why the daily plans lack detail. I would send them to you for free. Thank you for buying it.

I have just posted a revised version of The Stranger Unit Plan. It now is 76 pages with plenty of offerings for an in-depth analysis of this novel. I asked the APLit teachers at my school (three of the 4 have earned National Board Certification) to review it, and they found it to be thorough and comprehensive. I hope that you find this more amenable to your needs.

The unit seems more geared toward sophomores than juniors or seniors, certainly those who are advanced enough to be studying this novel. Although its content isn't bad, the tests/quizzes seem pretty basic. The writing prompts are better, but the final essay is less analytical than I'd hoped for.

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 7, 2014,  Buyer asked:
I have a question about the existentialist or believer quiz. Where is the answer key or some other part of it? For example, after students add up their score, what do they do with it? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 7, 2014Connie answered:
Thank you so much for checking with me on this. I did forget to add the Answer Key for this, although the Existentialism Notes will help you to interpret the answers. Please accept my apology.

Here is the Key; I will add it to the keys in the unit plan after I send you this,so you won't have to re-download it. # 6, 7, 8, 11, 14 and 15 follower Existentialist beliefs. The other 14 follow the philosophy of Believers (those who believe in a power higher than themselves).

Enjoy the rest of the unit.

Best,
Connie
On  May 14, 2013Catherine Hall (TpT Seller) asked:
I was just curious if you used all of the activities from page 35-47 at certain points in the novel or all at the end?

Thanks so much for the unit. It is so great!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 14, 2013Connie answered:
Catherine,
I have used them all during different years, but time constraints never allowed me to use all of them each year (Big sigh. I sure wish that they did). I selected which activities to use depending on which elements I wanted to study in depth, as well as my students' skills and abilities. Often, those that I didn't have students complete in writing were touched on in our discussions. When a student(s) needed more reinforcement on an element, I would give it to him/her to complete with me in before or after school work sessions. In my units, I try to offer a number of choices so teachers can pick and choose what suits their students' needs. If you want to chat about this some more, let me know. Thank you for your purchase and support. Enjoy teaching this fascinating novel.
Happy Teaching,
Connie

On  March 14, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Do all of these packets come with and answer key?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 14, 2013Connie answered:
If you mean the Unit Plans, yes, they do. Quizzes, tests and some of the study questions have answer keys as do other parts of the plans. Each unit is different, so the answer keys vary. You will find them either at the very beginning, or at the very end of each packet. For The Stranger, the answer keys can be found on pages 1-3. Thank you for your purchase. Enjoy the unit.
Best,
Connie
