Product Description
Challenge students to go beyond the text with this assignment. Students must select a theme from the novel, record events or situations that relate to that theme as they read, and finally write an explanatory essay describing how Alexie develops this theme.

Students will develop their critical thinking skills as they read, selecting key points from the book and analyzing how these events, characters, or quotes relate to their chosen theme. Being allowed to choose their own theme to study from a list of relevant topics increases student engagement, and creating the list as they read allows students to write the essay itself with relative ease.
