A very simple question that can act as a discussion prompt or an in-class essay. The prompt asks students to identify the reasons why Luther was able to survive the Diet of Worms without being arrested and executed. The SmartBoard Notebook file is easily convertible to PDF format if you choose to use this as a handout. The prompt could be used as a basis for a whole class discussion, a short written assignment or as a group discussion. It was originally designed for a Grade 10 pre-IB class but could be used by various grade levels.
