We’ve heard whispers that “Streetcar isn’t good for this version of the course” or “this text is overdone.” We say that’s nonsense, and our students agree. And trust us, the test scores don’t lie! This provocative play from Tennessee Williams gets students talking, and rightfully so. The discussions around class, gender, and sexuality with students will keep them talking and writing with passion. If you haven’t taught it, give it a try. If you already have, we hope you enjoy our intertextuality approach. This unit includes: – 11 detailed lessons – Essential contextual background – Discussion questions – Student sample writing – Range of speaking and writing activities – Links and activities to Elia Kazan’s film – Graphic organizers galore – Complete summative assessment
