I use this activity with juniors, though it can also be used with any high-school age group. After reading "A Worn Path," break your class into five groups. Each group receives a separate topic and questions list to discuss, answer, and then share with the class.
This activity will deepen their understanding of the story, and help them understand sensory detail, metaphor, symbols and other story themes.
See the preview file for specifics and sample questions.
