Product Description

Helping students understand the archetypal Gothic heroine can be challenging, especially since different authors use this stock character for different purposes. This resource helps students explore the Gothic heroine through the lens of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. While this resource can be used to accompany a unit on one or both of these novels, it can also be used alone or as part of a unit focused on Gothic writing. Designed to be flexible for classes with different levels of prior knowledge.

Includes:

-Introductory think sheet and suggested answers.

-Three Gothic poems. One from each Bronte sister!

-Guided notes page to build prior knowledge.

-A graphic organizer to compare Gothic heroines!

-Passages from Wuthering Heights and Northanger Abbey, each of which stand alone.

-Questions for each passage and answer keys for each.

-Three journal prompts.

-Seven essay prompts. Great for writing or discussion
