This bundle includes materials for Unit 5 of the English 3 - Identity, Resistance, and the American Dream course. It contains a set of primary readings, a reading-response packet, an analytical essay assignment, supplemental readings, and a minute-by-minute pacing guide for days 46-66 of the course.
This unit challenges students to analyze the American front of World War II and its aftermath through Arthur Miller's play "All My Sons."
The unit focuses on the following three thematic questions:
• What is more important, loyalty to one’s family or doing what’s right for society as a whole?
• Which is more important, following your dreams, doing what’s right, and achieving high goals OR being practical, making money, and supporting your family?
• Which is a better way to live one’s life: Being an idealist, leading your life by intellectual principles; a pragmatist, focusing on what seems most realistic and practical; OR a spiritualist, placing your trust in spiritual and superstitious forces.
