This unit was designed to have honors 11th grade students teach each other about literary units in the American literary canon using short stories from several different movements. It was designed for 80 minute blocks, but can be taught within shorter periods. After several years of teaching this unit, I have experienced success with my students, and find they enjoy a deeper understanding of American Literary Movements. The handouts include an assignment sheet, lesson planning materials, a final group presentation rubric, an essay assignment and outline for the final assessment, along with an example body paragraph.
I can also send you a free link to an online Prezi presentation (free access) if you buy this product.
