This is a zip file containing:
1. A 15-slide PowerPoint introduction to The Yellow Wallpaper, with good basic information for launching a Victorian Women's literature unit, should you choose to use it that way. The PowerPoint includes details about the life of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the "rest cure" popular in her time, and the "Feminine Ideal." There are some great pictures on the PPt! The final slide shows a ten-word unit of SAT-level vocabulary words found in The Yellow Wallpaper.
2. A Vocabulary Quiz on those words (matching and fill-in-the-blank)
3. A handout for use while students read The Yellow Wallpaper. The first page is a graphic organizer where students track the narrator's illness and "cure." The second page of the handout contains 8 guide questions.
