PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY
Nonfiction book study; memoir

Nonfiction is an integral part of the CCSS. This is a great book to use when studying nonfiction as it is fairly easy to read; it reads like a novel; is a good transition into nonfiction if your students are fiction lovers.

"One of the great books of the century" Financial Times

"The most remarkable memoir of our time" Cynthia Ozick

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:

➢ Nine multiple choice questions, answers, and page numbers

➢ Five short answer questions, answers, and page numbers

➢ Information on the book: a short summary

➢ Information on Locked-in syndrome: several links and a short abstract

➢ 25 vocabulary words - not the definitions just the words

➢ There are three essay questions

➢ Information on Plato’s Theaetetus.

➢ Images from the film and from Bauby’s life in the hospital.

This is a heartbreaking true story:
"The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is a translation of the French memoir Le Scaphandre et le Papillon by journalist Jean-Dominique Bauby. It describes what his life is like after suffering a massive stroke that left him with a condition called locked-in syndrome. It also details what his life was like (the editor-in-chief of French Elle magazine) before the stroke."

I teach THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THE THEAETETUS.
