This two-day lesson plan takes your students back in time to an era where people did not marry for love but because of their social class. "The Storm," follows one woman's rebellion against that oppression while employing strong literary devices.
Music is implemented during the first day of the lesson to provide a strong foundation of what a metaphor is and how it functions within a literary work.
The second day invites students to study cause and effect relationships while paying specific attention to the setting of the story. Chopin masterfully creates a setting that largely influences the events in "The Storm," and students have a opportunity to analyze those events and think about what would have happened had the storm not been an issue.

-- Two days of scripted lesson plans
