Look no further than this unit! I have spent 12 years of my career making Great Expectations my favorite novel to teach AND my students' favorite book to read. This unit takes you through the 59 chapters at a reasonable pace, pointing out the salient attributes of Dickens' prolix writing. Symbolism lies within the characterization and the various settings; you, too, will understand the deeper meaning in this novel. Plus, there is a plethora of fun activities included in this unit plan to keep the classroom engaged all month long! It's worth the investment. Contact me if you have any questions/concerns, or if I can provide you a .docx version for your own purposes of editing.
