This unit embraces themes in Leo Tolstoy's novella "The Death of Ivan Ilyich." An author study starts out the unit, and a daily reading schedule with activities is included. The unit focuses on historical lens, theme, tone, character motives, and outlining.
This unit works with Honors 8th Grade Language Arts through 12th grade Literature. I would not recommend for regular 8th grade students or low/remedial classes.
World Literature component with an interesting final activity that students love!
The schedule is for approximately three weeks with 90 minute class schedule, but can be modified to fit shorter or longer block schedules.
All materials are editable. The novella is free property online.
