Chapter 10 finds the narrator sleeping when he hears some horrible news. His brother has been killed… What will he do? Leave the gang to be with his girlfried? Seek revenge? It’s a great chapter, leading into an even better one!!
After we finished reading, I wanted them to take a moment to reflect on the relationship the narrator has with his girlfriend. He knows she wants him to walk away from the gang and it looks like he is being pulled right back in. Do they know of any other famous relationships (film, television, literature) that are comparable?
The ability to compare AND contrast is a great skill to develop as our students in the upper level classes are becoming more and more able to output. I got some very interesting comparisons… none more interesting than Anakin Skywalker and Padme! 🙂
