"The Joy Luck Club": Three Items
This product contains 3 items for helping you teach Amy Tan's "The Joy Luck Club."
The first item is a 40-slide PowerPoint that introduces Amy Tan and, more importantly, introduces modern Chinese history from the early 1900s forward. This information gives the students some necessary background knowledge so that when they are reading the novel, especially about the stories that take place in China, the students will have a basic understanding of what's going on and why the characters think and act the way they do.
Depending on how in depth you get with your lecture, this presentation could last 2 days to 4 days.
Student Lecture Guide
The next item is a 5-page student lecture guide that students use while going through the lecture with the PowerPoint. For the students, they simply fill in the blanks from each slide. This helps them stay focused on the presentation without bogging them down in copying notes. This item comes in Word and in PDF.
Characters' Family Trees
The third item is a PDF-only file that has the four family trees of each of the mother-daughter pairs. I have students keep this on their desk while we read the novel and encourage students to take notes on the family tree about the characters. This is a great tool for students to use so they can keep track of the characters and remember which family they belong to.
