This unit is designed for classrooms using Kathie Nunley's layered curriculum system. At one point, I ran all four of my classes using her system and I have read her book. I found great results with this system, but none more than with groups who are self-motivated, gifted, or perhaps suffering from "senioritis-get-this-over-with" syndrome. :)
While it can be incredibly time-consuming to create a layered project, once it's created, it's done! You can give it out at the beginning or end of a unit and make it as hands-on or hands-off as you find appropriate.
This unit follows the Holt, Rinehart, and Winston series Elements of Literature because those were our books. However, the Romantic literature referred to here can be found everywhere and these are some of the most anthologized works from the authors. I feel confident this will work with any textbook or unit plan for the British Romantics.
