This bundle includes 4 pre-reading assignments for teaching Twelve Angry Men. It also includes an end of pre-reading assessment which requires students to use the 4 prior pre-reading assignments. The assignments focus on using various forms of informational text to introduce a unit that connects the play to the United States Justice System.

Included are:

1. An Anticipation Guide with controversial questions that students provide their opinions to with their own background knowledge. This is a great discussion generator.

2. A Vox Media article (formatted for you, and a link to the source) and link to a video which supports the information in the article about jury selection and race, with an assignment which includes a controversial activator and a student-friendly chart for notes.

3. A Time Magazine article (formatted for you, and a link to the source) with graphics and charts about exoneration and information about the wrongly convicted, with questions that encourage students to read closely and demonstrate understanding and create an argument.

4. Notes for a PBS Frontline News episode (in which it is unclear if the right man went to prison for a fire that led to the death of his three children) entitled "Death by fire," with a link to the source, with the notes requiring students to make a connection between the episode and the Time Magazine article.

5. A final pre-reading creative and writing assessment with a rubric and grading scale, which requires students to revisit the Anticipation Guide and explain how their opinions were changed, reinforced, or qualified, using evidence from the pre-reading assignments/sources.
