Based on the popular novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, students will reflect on why it is great to be alive rather than the thirteen reasons why Hannah took her life.
The prompts promote a growth mindset and positive outlook, encourage gratitude and kindness, and offer an opportunity for self-reflection, all of which builds emotional intelligence.
I included the prompts in a print-and-go student handout as well as an editable version in Google Docs that can be shared electronically with your students via Google Classroom™ (or other secured sites), several variations of a standards-aligned rubric along with an editable copy, and clear objectives and procedure for the teacher.
Teachers may use this as a culminating activity after reading the novel and/or watching the Netflix series.
Use this in conjunction with these resources that can be used with ANY novel:
