The Complete Death of a Salesman - Acts 1 and 2 - 9 Lessons

The Complete Death of a Salesman - Acts 1 and 2 - 9 Lessons

These powerpoint presentations are beautifully illustrated and very engaging for the students. Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’ is made up of two long acts. So I have created four separate lessons for each act. These presentations not only capture the narrative of the story with structured tasks, but more importantly highlight the themes and the motifs. I have taught this play and used these resources as lesson materials, as revision materials and also as homework. Each of these presentations include a starter activity, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, an extension task and a plenary.
