PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This extensive, literary unit plan for A Streetcar Named Desire is designed around the philosophy of developing close reading skills and text based responses which require supporting evidence for nearly every aspect of each scene. The literary unit is completely original and has been keenly tuned to address a wide range of learners with varying reading comprehension skills. In short, this unit will help all students to look closely at the playwright’s craft and encourage them to write thoughtful, in depth responses and support their ideas with evidence from the text.

I adhere to the basic principal that each lesson should have a beginning, middle and an end. Keeping with this simple philosophy, most daily lesson begins with a “focus and review” assignment to generate discussion on the previous day’s material and orientate the students for the upcoming lesson. The heart of each lesson requires the students to continually refer back to the text to support their ideas or opinions. Through a variety of designs, the graphic organizers, worksheets, and chart fill-ins support close reading techniques as the students will be required to cite evidence from the text to support their answers and opinions. All lessons conclude with a “closure” activity which helps the students to review the key concepts discussed during the lesson and to offer a personal opinion about the material learned.
