ENG4C: Finishing the Novel

Jan 12:

Today we finished Little Brother. Students were given questions to respond to in class. 

Jan 14:

Today we did a reading test on the final chapter/epilogue of the novel. Students used their reading strategies to investigate the ending of the novel.  We also brainstormed questions for our final discussion circle on the novel on Friday.

Topics for discussion:

  1. The importance of the internet to teens (both in the novel and outside of the text). Be sure to make connections to the novel in the discussion.
  2. The relationship between the government and the people including the use of violence/brutality and the pursuit of security. Remember to connect your ideas to the novel.
