What happens to a dream deferred? This editable PowerPoint presentation is designed to guide English 102: Literature students through this question through the lens of two iconic figures in American Literature: Walter Lee Younger and Willie Lowman. Students are guided to discuss the American Dream and its historic and current complications. Literary terms for drama are listed for review in preparation of reading, viewing, annotating, and analyzing Death of a Salesman and A Raisin in the Sun. Students are also directed to dramatize a scene from A Raisin in the Sun and compose a Comparative Literary Analysis Essay. This unit material would also be appropriate for American Literature, AP Literature, or a Drama and Film course.
