Schisms and Divisions in Crime and Punishment

Educators who use Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel Crime and Punishment as part of their curriculum may want to check out this set of lesson plans available from EDSITEment, the National Endowment for the Humanities' online collection of free educational materials. Here, visitors will find three standards-aligned lesson plans, each examining a different aspect of the novel. The first lesson focuses on the main character Raskolnikov's "dualistic personality traits" and is intended to take place after students have read Parts One and Two and the first chapter of Part Three. After students have read the entire novel, the second lesson addresses Raskolnikov's Man vs. Superman theory and whether this theory is borne out in the novel's fictional reality, while the third lesson centers on the societal schisms in Crime and Punishment. Each lesson comes with downloadable worksheets (with separate teacher's versions), and suggested writing prompts for learning assessment and lesson extensions are also included. While these lessons were created with upper-level high school students in mind, independent learners or book clubs may also enjoy adapting them to enhance their reading experience.
