Product Description

This unit plan contains all of my original ideas and resources I've created for my unit on Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi, which I use as the primary text during my Middle East unit in my World Literature class. Along with analyzing the graphic novel through a more traditional literary lens, I also use to the content of the book to inspire many lessons and activities (including a major research paper) related to some broader, more complex issues that are so relevant particularly in the Middle East right now—questions of ideologies and their connections to history, religion, and politics (see the preview for more details). I always try to teach my students HOW to think, not what to think, and this unit accomplishes that quite well.

Along with a 12-day pacing guide, you will find in these resources 6 pages of plans mapped out over the course of the book, which include over 20 lesson ideas (i.e., activities, projects, debates, research, essays), which include a major research paper on modern "ideological" connections that students conceptualize and research. The plans also include 18 links to complementary resources (i.e., movie clips and quality webpages), and over 25 quality discussion questions throughout. Additionally, you will find 2 multiple-choice reading quizzes and 7 pages of printable handouts that correspond to my lesson ideas.

Also, feel free to check out my other World Literature unit plans on:

- Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton

- The Good Earth by Pearl Buck

- The Motorcycle Diaries by Che Guevara

- The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
