Product Description
The House on Mango Street lesson plan is a three-week, day-to-day plan. Analysis of the novella is driven by Diane Klein's essay that looks at the marginalization of women in Chicano culture as viewed through the lens of Mango Street and Bless Me, Ultima. Read and analyzed in this context, Mango Street generates impassioned and revealing discussions with and amongst the students, who very much identify with Esperanza and her life on Mango Street.

The House on Mango Street demands close reading, for it is a deceptively complex text. Day 3 (see preview) is typical of the larger lesson plan in that it shows students working, image by image, towards a deeper understanding of the text. It also shows how students prepare on a daily basis, through close analysis and discussion, for the final essay that asks them to defend Klein's thesis.

Poetry analysis during the reading:
"The Babies I," by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.

Note: bolded headings in each day of the lesson plan are transitional points within the class hour. All homework/handouts are copy-ready (see Blood Meridian preview and description for an example).
