A Few Additional Notes
There is a project in this unit. Students select moments from the text and write alternative scenes to create a "choose-your-own-adventure" text. Students will revise Wharton's ironic choices.
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 writing assignment asks students to select three literary terms, define them, and provide examples of them from Ethan Frome in a factual essay. The second writing assignment challenges students to write about three goals which they would like to achieve; they must define their goals and explain how they intend to achieve them. In Writing Assignment #3 students write a letter to students in the next class that will be reading Ethan Frome, persuading them that although the book was published in 1911, it is not a dusty, old, has-been book; it has value for readers today.
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.
