A Level: (5) Death of a Salesman - Act 1 Part iv - Willy’s planned suicide to Biff in the basement

A Level: (5) Death of a Salesman - Act 1 Part iv - Willy’s planned suicide to Biff in the basement

This powerpoint presentation is beautifully illustrated and very engaging for the students. Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’ is made up of two very long acts. So I have created four separate lessons for each act. This presentation not only captures the narrative of the story with structured tasks but more importantly highlights the themes and motifs. I have taught this play many times and used this resource as a lesson material, a revision material and also a homework.
