This essay assignment asks students to think critically about the book by answering ONE of six thought-provoking questions. You may choose to alter my Word document to change the requirement for students to answer additional questions. The six questions in this assignment are from the (late) Welch, New York or Thanksgiving chapters and would work best for an end-of-book/reflective assignment. Several questions require that the students be finished reading to respond. Several of the questions may also indicate to you, as the teacher, whether or not students completed the reading.
If your students read The Glass Castle and you are interested in collaborating or Skyping with my classes, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org! My students and I love discussing the book with new people!
