In this lesson students will read the opening chapter of the novel Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. The novel is soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg. Students will read the novel and answer close reading questions and comprehension questions. They will compare and contrast the text and the trailer for the movie. They will paste images from Google searches relating to cultural references being discussed in the text. They will even play a round of Pong online! The novel is takes place in a future where everything happens in virtual reality. There are many possibilities to expand this lesson. My students loved the excerpt and many picked up the novel at the library to continue reading. This lesson is perfect for a Chromebook!
