A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of having students practice informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions in writing. In the first assignment, students will write an essay to define their personal code of ethics and moral principles. In the second writing assignment, students will write a comparison essay, comparing the movie version of A Man For All Seasons with the text. In the third writing assignment, students will write a persuasive essay, choosing one of several given topics.
There are many activities included in this unit. There's a group project in which students research topics related to the historical background of the play. Students also (among other things) work on their oral reading, character study, and the study of quotations from the play.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
