This lesson utilizes Opening, Core, and Closing questions that require students to participate in a thoughtful discussion of the first half of the novel s part of a Paideia seminar. See this link for more info on this discussion method: https://www.causeweb.org/uscots/uscots05/spotlight/files/P34.pdf.
The discussion opens with students discussing from season two of The Walking Dead ("Save the Last One" episode). Then we move on to core questions that focus them not only on the text but also real world and personal connection questions. Finally, we conclude with closing questions that ask them to use the passage to answer the unit's essential questions.
