Guiding Question: What are the forces that shape our identity?
In this novel, students will learn about symbols and symbolism. Students have work every night--reading a chapter, preparing notes, writing on a concept in class, or filling out their Chapter Notes. Below is the full text of the novel if a student wishes to read it on their device, or access to the story is needed outside of class. If a student is absent, they can read the next chapter. Students can also email me for information on chapter activity or to get a copy of the chapter notes.
We will spend about two days on each chapter. One day reading and preparing a concept. Below is an example of the CHAPTER NOTES for Chapter One. Subsequent chapters get more difficult so students need to stay on top of their reading.
Every chapter will have a QUIZ to assess the student's understanding of the plot. Below is an example of a quiz question.
Every chapter will have an CHAPTER ACTIVITY for students to delve into the deeper (symbolic) meaning. Below is an example of a Chapter Activity.
Every chapter will have a discussion question or two to discuss with the table group. This will help the students think beyond the plot of the book and delve into the deeper meanings. These DISCUSSION QUESTIONS are linked directly to their graded discussion, essay writing, and promote understanding of the chapter. Below is an example.
