Product Description
Their Eyes Were Watching God, written by Zora Neale Hurston is an American classic that was nearly forgotten until Alice Walker’s influence started a revival in academia in the late 1980s. These lessons focus on the chapter where Janie begins life after her husband has died. The prose sections, AP Multiple Choice questions with answer key, a link to the professional audio book excerpt matching the text, film clips from YouTube, links to viewing guides for the film, NPR stories on Hurston and excerpts from the play, Letters from Zora. This is a compliment to teaching the novel, the 1920s, or an engaging read on its own.

In this resource there is a unique detailed rubric that can be used to score Socratic Seminars in a way that encourages organic fluid discussions. In the guide there is a step by step explanation on how to conduct a fish-bowl discussion with the rubric. An assessment essay from the 2005 AP English Literature essay Question #3 on inward and outward conformity is used which also has links to a rubric and student essay samples. Complete Common Core standards and Essential and Key Questions are included. All lessons have an opening, work session, and closing.
