A desirous related text

21 Sep

One of the things my Standard English students struggle with is the selection of appropriate related material.  As such, I find it helpful to have a list of possible texts handy which are clearly referable to the rubric and the set text.

One text that I think would work particularly well for Module C: Exploring Transitions is A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams.  As required by this module, the text engages well with shifts in values as Blanche transitions from one phase/experience to the next.  The text is also interesting in that Blanche is shown to regress (transition backward) which offers an interesting counter to the forward momentum of transitions in many of the set texts.
