PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 5-day mini-unit serves as an introduction to the historical concept of the American Dream. I use it with my seniors before we read "A Raisin in the Sun." We also finish up by reading some articles about the American Dream today, and students write an essay on the historical depiction of the American Dream and its relevance today.

Each day focuses on an aspect of the dream, plus an aspect of reading poetry (such as persona/tone, poetic language, form, etc.).

Included in this unit is a daily plan, all the poems, essays and articles covered, a worksheet for each day, and the assignment sheet and rubric for the final essay (even though it is completed a few weeks after this initial intro unit).
