This is a Socratic seminar (part of my Rikki-tikki-tavi Activities Bundle
) that can be used as a GATE post-reading activity after Rudyard Kipling's short story "Rikki-tikki-tavi." It contains fourteen open-ended questions about character, plot, theme, conflict, stereotyping, motivation, and personification. I have also included two options for follow-up writing assignments dealing with character perspectives and the theme of good vs. evil.
These questions are meant to be used as a chunk, but if you don't have a whole bell (I often have to cut seminars off at the end of the bell because the students get so into them!), you can choose a few of the most interesting questions. I recommend using at least one question from the beginning, middle, and end sections to give your seminar a logical structure.
Good luck - I hope your students enjoy these as much as mine have!
