Advanced Placement Students and Sophomore Students
When we have finished reading the two novels, I will ask my students to independently choose one community and start researching how today's community deals with similar thematic ideas, or one of their choice. Once the students have decided what community they want to study, they will have to start interviewing the people of that community. I will bring to class very specific models of interview questions, and we will write and practice in class. As source materials, my student can also use photographs, videos they can shoot, as well as any other documents they can find. They will conclude this research with an in-class presentation in which they will explain how their selected community copes with the themes (power, authority, evilness, or greed) that have emerged from the two novels.
