American Lit: Welcome to UNIT 2!!

Today we begin a new unit (yes, right before a long weekend! This was fabulous planning on my part. Flawless, really.) on Arthur Miller’s famous play The Crucible, and on The Power of Persuasion!

Learning Target: I can identify and analyze the skills and knowledge necessary for success in completing the Embedded Assessments for this unit.

Opening Session: Sparknotes Summary: Arthur Miller’s The Crucible

Work Session: We will begin today, as every Friday, by taking your vocab quiz!!

After your quiz, we have a few minutes left to preview this unit, so flip to page 108 in your text and we will do the Previewing the Unit activity. We want to unpack the first embedded assessment, as well!

This should take us right up to the end of class, and then we will say adios for a LONG WEEKEND! Go have fun at Dragon*Con or something!

Closing Session: Let’s wrap up the previous unit by giving any feedback you have about it 🙂

Assessment: Formal (vocab quiz)
