This one day, detailed lesson plan provides a thorough overview of the characters and setting in A Streetcar Named Desire from scene 1. This plan includes a quick mini-lesson to provide students with the meanings behind proper names in the play; it then invites students to move around the room and work cooperatively to answer specific questions about a character or location introduced in scene 1. All questions require students to work together to practice extracting specific textual evidence from the play in order to form a group response. Finally, an extension/homework activity requires students to work on their vocabulary while also reinforcing the skill of extracting textual evidence for support. Teacher notes, key questions and suggestions included!
