Product Description
Edith Wharton’s novel Ethan Frome is a classic literary work for the classroom. The activities in this 11-page package may be used individually or as a unit. I have taught it to regular, Honors, and AP classes as an introduction to modern American literature.

• The Dialectical Journal is an easily modified close-reading assignment for different age groups and class levels. Includes reproducible templates for journaling handouts, a sample journaling entry, and a grading rubric

• The Symbolism and Motif trackers are valuable close reading tools for focusing on those specific literary elements. Includes reproducible tracker templates

• The Project-Based Learning group PowerPoint assignment incorporates technology as it appeals to a variety of learning styles as it gives students an opportunity to exercise their preferences among art, music, poetry, or photography. Includes a handout for a Bio-poem characterization activity specific to this novella with a sample Bio-poem

• The Introductory Project-Based Learning WebQuest group assignment incorporates technology and public speaking as it appeals to a variety of learning styles. It crosses the curriculum to incorporate social studies (history and sociology) to introduce students to the historical and cultural context of the novel.
