THE FIRST UNIT IS FOR ELIE WIESEL'S NIGHT
****MY BEST SELLING UNIT****
This is a 3 week unit on Elie Wiesel’s Night aligned to Common Core and lesson plans are included! There are 16 Power Points and 10 handouts included as well.
This unit packet features everything you will need to teach Wiesel’s memoir.
The introductory PowerPoint will answer the ten most frequent questions most students have regarding the Holocaust complete with graphs and photos to aid their comprehension.
I also teach a lesson on Hitler’s use of propaganda so students can understand how Germany was convinced to allow such an atrocity to occur.
This unit also teaches concepts such as dehumanization of Holocaust prisoners, the symbolism of the young Pipel, personification, irony and so much more are discussed in this unit.
THE SECOND UNIT IS FOR "OEDIPUS REX"
****MY SECOND BEST SELLING UNIT****
In this Common Core Aligned unit for the Greek Tragedy “Oedipus Rex,” there are nine Power Points and ten handouts included.
By the end of this curriculum unit which lasts for two weeks, students will be able to understand the origin and development of drama in Athens in the 5th and 6th centuries BC., will be able to compare and contrast ancient Greek drama with modern dramatics forms, will understand ancient Greek religion and its role in mythology, and will be able to apply many literary terms to the play such as situational, dramatic, and verbal irony!
The many activities in this unit include learning stations, a clock activity, character development with magazine cutouts, and a review game called “Pass the Board.”
At the end of the unit, I allow my students to watch “Troy” and students compare and contrast Achilles to Oedipus using the literary terms. This activity reinforces what students have already learned and of course the video is awesome!
I allow my upper level students (honors) to write the essay based on the video. The chart serves as a guide and as the evidence they use to support their claims.
The unit will last for two weeks. I have included the ten lesson plans, aligned to Common Core, as well as the unit test.
ALL LESSON PLANS ARE INCLUDED AND ALIGNED TO COMMORE CORE!
