Growing up with his cranky older sister, Pip has often found life difficult. However, his sister's husband, Joe, has always been kind and loyal to him making his life more tolerable. When Pip is summoned to the home of rich, eccentric Miss Havisham, he meets the beautiful, but unapproachable Estella. Pip is drawn to Estella, but she is so disapproving of him that he soon feels he can never be content with his humble life again. Pip is determined to become a gentleman, and when a mysterious stranger gives him a fortune, his dreams come true. Surely Pip has found happiness at last! Or does he find out here there is more to happiness than great wealth?

 OVERVIEW OF THE UNIT

This unit tries to be as comprehensive as possible, in order to allow you to make choices. There are many activities suggested. Anyone attempting to use all of them will spend more than three months on this unit alone. Feel free to choose activities which suit your students needs.

After an introduction to the author and his works, this unit breaks down Great Expectations by chapter groupings. Each grouping contains a brief summary of the chapters which includes suggestions for teaching those chapters, followed by a list of student activities and a chapter quiz. The quiz is designed to show if students have read and understood the chapters; it is not intended to test higher level thinking skills. At the end of the unit are suggestions for writing and oral presentations.
