Product Description
This is a CCSS based unit for American Literature. Students examine literature from the late nineteenth century in America with a focus on the theme of "the changing role of women." Students read two stories from the time period by female authors: 1) "April Showers" by Edith Wharton and 2) "The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin. Reading guides are created to go along with each story. Students focus on irony for "The Story of an Hour" and they focus on plot development for "April Showers." There are vocabulary words to go along with the stories as well. After reading the stories, students will be in groups in which they conduct research and put together a multi-media/multi-genre presentation that focuses on the exploration of how the positioning of women protagonists in the stories exposes the authors' views of women in society.

This is a unit inside of a unit. I also teach "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" after this unit. It is important for students to focus on other themes and literature of the time--not just being exposed to "Huck Finn". To introduce this unit, I have four questions in which students free write on and have class discussions as well as answering the timeline questions from the textbook.

This unit includes a PowerPoint presentation; a detailed, step-by-step unit plan; and the student handout, which includes rubrics, instructions, reading guides, MLA citation guide for their research, and much more. CCSS are listed along with objectives.
