PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Unit Plan Includes:

Overarching Essential Questions: What essential questions will guide this unit and focus teaching/learning?
• What elements shape our understanding of reading – plot, symbolism, metaphor, character, setting, etc.?
• How do scenery and setting, in particular, contribute to tone and mood?
• In what ways does an author use “the unsaid,” a reader’s assumptions, or catharsis to contribute to or manipulate the reading/understanding of a text?
• How are doubts, uncertainty, and desire universal to humans, such that these transcend throughout a range of works, driving characters towards acts of deceit and passion?
• What are the dangers of imaginative narration – both in fiction and in reality?


Enduring Understandings:
By the end of this unit, students will come to understand that…
• writing is an art of both the “unsaid” and the said; it is a mastery of subtleties.
• writing paints a picture for the mind, using words alone; metaphors, personification, symbolism, and themes shade, color, highlight, and dim the realities of a story/narrative.
• reading must be an attentive act.
• all characters – sinister or not – are deserving of pathos.
• revenge is a complicated emotion, rooted in desire and doubt.
• comparison is the thief of joy.
• in some ways, all humans are interlopers, continuously punctuating the lives of all those who surround us.
