This package contains 18 lesson plans. One plan addresses the poem that prefaces the play, another addresses the set design, and the rest address the scenes in the play. Some scenes contain several lesson plans, such as the first which has a lesson that focuses on each member of the Younger family and the relationships between them. Activities include characterization exercises, a debate, and extension activities that give students the opportunity to create a "missing" scene or a comic strip of the important events in scene. Each lesson is created for a 1-2 hour block but can be done in less time depending on the students and how much the teacher chooses to have them read in class. The unit lasts about 5-6 weeks.
