A Few Additional Notes

There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. Students will read a companion piece related to the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life and research alchemical concepts. They will give a presentation on their companion pieces and relate to The Alchemist. Students will create character journals. Students will select a quotation and write a persuasive essay about how the quotation relates to ideas presented in The Alchemist.

LitPlan Uses

These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adaped 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.
