This download contain an activity that tasks the students with analyzing nine quotes from Arthur Miller's play, Death of a Salesman. Nine significant quotations have been selected for this assignment. The students will need to identify the speaker, who is being spoken to, and the act in which the quote is found. The students will also need to answer three to four unique analysis questions about the speaker's motivation, meaning, and mentality. The assignment can be given as a group assignment or as an individual assignment.
I have used this as an assignment on days when I will be out with a sub. It worked very well! I assigned three quotes to each group, and it took the students about forty minutes to complete the assignment.
The analysis questions also provide great class discussion starters!
