This is a MASSIVE unit that includes everything one would need to teach Animal Farm by George Orwell. Included in this unit:
QUESTIONS: There are questions for every two chapters including vocabulary for each set of chapters. Questions should guide students as they read to note important events and engage with the text. Detailed keys are included for all questions.
QUIZZES: There are quizzes and keys that correspond with each set of chapter questions.
LITERATURE CIRCLES: There are engaging and creative discussion questions for each set of chapters to allow students to go beyond the plot and dig even deeper into the characters, themes, symbols, conflict, and the allegory revealed throughout the text. There are more than enough questions for each set of chapters. Use all of them or break students up into groups! (Questions are broken up by topic - theme, characters, symbolism, etc.) Note: No keys are included for this part of the unit. Many questions are written to allow for opinion and interpretation to promote discussion and thoughtfulness.
MAPPING THE ALLEGORY ACTIVITY: This activity allows students to identify key moments in Animal Farm and relate to the events of the Russian Revolution. This is a great way to teach allegory and emphasize its effectiveness and power through story! A detailed key is included!
TEST REVIEW: A detailed review will prepare students for their exam. No surprises here! It covers everything they will need to know for the test included. A detailed key will help you prepare students well. It can be easily adjusted to be used as an in-class review activity or game!
