Product Description
This activity's objective is to build schema and interest in reading The Road. Students are assigned 1 of 6 Doomsday scenarios. Each scenario is a realistic explanation for the incident that sparked McCarthy's apocalyptic world and is detailed in about 1.5 pages of reading. Students read, take notes, write responses, group together, and present information. I've found this to be a great activity because students continue to bring up these scenarios while reading The Road, using the text as support for what they think happened.
