This unit, entitled "Expectations" thematically ties together three works: the film "The Miracle Worker", the short story "The Scarlet Ibis", and the novella "Of Mice and Men".
This unit includes the "bones" you will need to work with the texts, including a final unit test that will address all three works. In addition, the supporting work will address vocabulary, themes of the works, and literary devices.
There are three guiding questions to bring students back to throughout the unit. These questions will tie together the texts.
I have been teaching this unit for multiple years with a great degree of success! Students enjoy the film and stories and can make wonderful connections both between the works and to their own lives/the real world.
