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 write about the return of Charles II and his changes in the theatre. The second writing assignment, "Happily Ever After?", is persuasive writing. Assignment three is creative: students write a three act comedy.
There is a group theme project (also one of the required writing assignments for this unit). Student groups will write a three act play based on the format of Shakespearean comedies. Each group will create a plot that follows the standard “boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back” and includes certain stereotypical characters. The groups will rehearse and present their plays at the end of the unit.
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.
