MOVE AWAY FROM GENERIC QUESTIONS AND INTO TEXT-BASED ASSIGNMENTS WITH QUESTIONS THAT REQUIRE CRITICAL THINKING, READING, AND WRITING

Included in this unit are the following:

➢ This unit allows for differentiated learning; some students may be more comfortable with the questions that focus on the lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (remembering/ comprehension and simple applications/understanding), whereas other questions provide students the opportunity to focus on higher levels (analysis and evaluation).

➢ 21 multiple choice questions and answers – these questions are based on the film and the book.

➢ Information on parables and fables.

➢ Two Critical Lens Quotation Practice questions. Please note that the follow up questions differ. For instance, one asks the students to: “Use the criteria suggested by the critical lens to analyze the works you have chosen,” and the other asks for the following: “Explain how these literary works support your opinion regarding the quotation.” I have kept the two different versions so that you can decide for yourself if you prefer one set of questions to another.

➢ Eight vocabulary words with definitions. The vocabulary list contains words that students should define in order to understand Nietzsche.

➢ All of the essay questions included here are text based and require critical thinking, reading, and writing; they address concerns regarding the Common Core ELA/ Literacy: Shift 4: Text-based Answers.

➢ One of the essay questions asks students to interpret a small excerpt from Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra (included), or students can try to interpret a longer section of Nietzsche that is also included.

➢ There are suggested answers for the textual analysis section; the chapter on Nietzsche includes a series of notes for comprehension.

➢ There are a total of 14 essay questions with 13 sub-questions:

• 10 essay and/or discussion questions – with thirteen sub-questions; some of these questions are based on the film, some on the novel, and some compare the two.

• A further three essay questions that require extra research; one of the questions compares the book/film to Hannah Arendt.

• There is one question that compares an excerpt from Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas – the quotation is broken down for close textual analysis.

• These questions vary as to difficulty and are aligned with the following Common Core Standards:
