Holes Essay Topics will get learners engaging with meaningful topics the novel raises:
→ Theme - the meaning of the title
→ Character - the effect of family
→ Setting - the importance of place
SUGGESTED ACTIVITY IMPLEMENTATION
Students will choose from a few deep topics to either write an essay or turn their essay outline into a speech on the topic. During the speeches, students will need to understand and chart the speakers’ thesis statements. And for you . . . no-hassle grading rubrics are included to make your teaching life easier and save you time.
They can then choose to write an essay or deliver a speech on their ideas from Holes. The grading rubrics are included for easy, effective grading and feedback.
