Students will learn vocabulary, how to recognize themes, motifs and symbols.

There are serious issues in this book about human interaction, thoughts of suicide, threat of nuclear war. There are several scenes that contain violence. I have taught this book for 10 years, and am aware of possible reactions that students might have.
Homework OfferedStudents will need to read the assigned pages in the book, keep track of main plot events, character descriptions and decisions the characters make. They will need to come to each session with one or two honest discussion questions. After finishing each section, they will have a short assignment to show their understanding-- this can be writing, drawing, a slide show, or another option of their choice.

Assessments OfferedInformal assessment based on discussion. Assessment based on the short assignments.
Please purchase the 60th anniversary edition so we can all reference the same pages while we read. The cover is red, black and white. Students will need paper for taking notes and writing their opinions.
