Product Description

A Raisin in the Sun ends with a lot of questions, but one question I like to post to the students is, where did that scoundrel Willy Harris run off to? Using this interactive, high-energy Escape Room, your class will transform into the Chicago Police Headquarters and work in teams to track down Willy Harris and the money he stole from Walter Younger.

Want to see the Escape Room in action? Head on over to my Instagram page and watch my Escape Room highlights!

The Setup:

Your classroom becomes CPD HQ. You become the chief of police. There's crime scene tape and mug shots all around your classroom of Willy Harris. The speakers blare a YouTube playlist of police radio sounds. And the learning starts.

The Premise:

Students must read four interviews (close read passages) from Beneatha, Walter, Ruth, and Mama. Each interview comes with four questions. The answers to these questions reveal GPS coordinates for students to find Willy Harris' last known location. From there, students solve a few more clues to track him down before the class period is over.

Details:

This particular Escape Room is a hybrid of both digital and print elements. This product includes everything you will need in order to conduct the Escape Room, but it is highly recommended your students have access to at least one Chromebook per group and the teacher has an iPad OR Chromebook/laptop to use for the Escape Room. The lesson should take approximately one 50 minute class period to complete, depending on the pace you set for your students.

This Product Includes:

  • Access to the CPD HQ Website (check it out!)
  • A full lesson plan with step-by-step directions for carrying out the Escape Room
  • A list of ideas and suggestions for your classroom transformation
  • Day Before Check List
  • Day-Of Check List
  • Four Close Reading Passages (interviews)
  • Sixteen multiple choice questions (clues)
  • Image files of landmark locations and hiding places around the city of Chicago
  • A WANTED poster of Willy Harris
  • A student answer sheet
  • A teacher answer key
  • A curated YouTube playlist to set the stage for the CPD HQ
  • A "We Caught Willy" image to use for the iPad lock screen

Your students will be so excited to finally catch that dirty scoundrel Willy Harris!
