PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Norman Corwin wrote the classic play, The Rivalry, on the Stephen Douglas-Abraham Lincoln senatorial debates of 1858, told through the viewpoint of Adele Douglas, many years after the debate, the Civil War, and President Lincoln’s assassination. Links to the entire text and audio performance are provided as well as a videotaped performance of the scene where Abraham Lincoln rides on a train with Adele Douglas.

The beauty of this resource is that all film and audio clips, discussions, and exercises lead to the students mastering the written assessment. It is designed to help teachers easily and flawlessly get students to succeed in writing successfully on the literary analysis of the scene with Adele Douglas and Abraham Lincoln. There is enough material here available to use without having to read the play—though it is a worthwhile play to be read by your classes.

There are many links to video and audio resources for analyzing the scene as the resource features an original writing prompt.

Instructions and strategies are included on how to teach a rhetorical précis, and hold an inner and outer Socratic Circle.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities. Now adaptable for ESOL classes.

The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions. I have added an addendum that describes how to adapt the lessons for ELL students.
