This is the first lesson plan of the Enchanted Forest. It is a lesson plan for the short story Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathanial Hawthorne. It was written for a mixed 11th/12th grade class but could be modified to fit a younger audience. The story can be found online and in multiple anthologies of Hawthorne's work. In the course of the lesson, students will answer questions regarding the story and then break into groups to discuss the answers to the questions. They will then write down character traits of the main characters. If there is time, I have included an additional activity regarding the parental relationships in the story. Both a lesson with and without this last activity is given. There is also a file containing the questions and the resources I used to write the questions. The last question regards a quote found in a book entitled Hawthorne's Fuller Mystery. The lesson satisfies "Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas, develop and interact over the course of a text" of the Common Core Standards.
