A Few Additional Notes
The class project is for students to walk a few miles in Willy's shoes by being salespeople for a class fund-raising project.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to inform: students create a sales plan relating to the class project. The second assignment is to persuade: students write a sales speech in which they convince someone to buy their products. The third assignment is to give students a chance to express their own opinions: students evaluate the success of the class project and tell about their own experiences with it.
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 play before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this play 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.
