The students read the short story "Sandkings" by George RR Martin. This story can be found online. This lesson plan includes 28 discussion questions about the story. The questions are divided into groups and the students first write about one question from each of the seven groups of questions and then discuss each set of questions with a group. I have them switch their group each time, but this is not necessary. These questions were created for seniors, but could be answered by younger students as well.
