The following are materials to accompany Eboo Patel's "Introduction: The Faith Line" from his work "Acts of Faith." It is a great, short piece for a nonfiction unit that asserts the importance of religious pluralism and could be used as a pre-reading activity for Elie Wiesel's "Night" or other works that teach inclusion and multiculturalism. The first three pages are a study guide that provides guiding questions for students to assess Patel's use of anecdotes, figurative language, irony, juxtaposition, logic, paradoxes, rhetoric, structure, subtext, symbolism, and themes. The fourth page is full of discussion questions on Patel's thesis/main idea, supporting points, anecdotes, figurative language, and rhetorical devices. The final fifth and sixth pages, which can be used as a summative assessment of the earlier pages, contain 15 multiple choice questions that assess Patel's use of assertions, figurative language, irony, symbolism, and thesis.
