THE READER by Bernhard Schlink

THIS UNIT COMBINES MY FOUR OTHER UNITS AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE.

THIS UNIT HAS BEEN REDONE SO THERE IS NEW MATERIAL HERE THAT IS NOT IN THE INDIVIDUAL UNITS

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:

1. A TEST: (as a separate PDF)
• 13 multiple-choice questions and answers along with page numbers. (All page numbers are from the Vintage 1997 edition)
• 10 fill in the blank questions with answers and page numbers.

2. EIGHT LONG FORM ESSAY (RESEARCH) QUESTIONS (In the unit and as a separate PDF)
• Two questions compare The Reader to Platonic dialogues.

3. 18 ESSAY AND/OR DISCUSSION QUESTIONS (In the unit and as a separate PDF)
• Four of the questions have sub-questions that help guide student answers. (16 sub-questions in total)
• Two of the sub-questions work with Platonic dialogues.

4. 79 VOCABULARY WORDS, DEFINITIONS, AND SYNONYMS – WITH (APPROXIMATE) PAGE NUMBERS (THE WORDS ARE GROUPED WITHIN A RANGE OF PAGES) COVERS THE ENTIRE NOVEL. (Words to define as a separate PDF)
All of the words listed in this unit appear frequently in the novel with several, if not all, of them being examined on past SATs. I find that developing vocabulary in conjunction with reading literature provides a better understanding over the alternative of trying to memorize vocabulary in isolation from its contextual setting. According to the CCSS for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies Appendix A, developing a rich vocabulary is best done through repeated exposure of words in a variety of contexts – not simply memorizing word lists.

5. CRITICAL LENS QUOTATION PRACTICE

6. AP ENGLISH LITERATURE FREE-RESPONSE PRACTICE

7. SOME IMAGES


I teach THE READER as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THE REPUBLIC (A FULCRUM TEXT). It is an excellent novel to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: justice, morality, ethics, sacrifice, duty, freedom, and illiteracy.
