A Streetcar Named Desire: Stanley the Returning Vet’s Experience

Fascinating and detailed lesson exploring the experience of WWII Veterans through the character of Stanley in A Streetcar Named Desire.

This lesson uses critical analysis, historical sources and close text analysis to give students a deep understanding of this critical interpretation.

My students were fascinated with this lesson and left with an entirely new perspective on the play and the apparent villain Stanley. Wonderful for AO5 and AO3.

There is also built in group work and opportunity for written assessment.

Can be picked up and taught immediately with no prep.
