A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. In the first assignment, students will read two stories and discuss the author’s use of the gothic elements. In assignment number two, students will create a journal for characters not directly heard from in the novel. In the third writing assignment, students will write a letter explaining their position on teaching Gothic/Horror literature in school. There is also group theme project in this unit. Student groups will select a 19th century Gothic author from a predetermined list. Each group will complete a brief biographical sketch of the author, read two short works (short stories) by the author, and complete a group poster (this last collective effort will be completed in class). The groups will present their information and explain how the literary works by this author fit the gothic genre.
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.
