Kurt Vonnegut Jr. is my all time favorite author, and Epicac is my favorite of his short stories. If you're reading science fiction, another one of Vonnegut's stories, or want something to read that's short, sweet, and that students will absolutely LOVE, than this is the right story for you and your class!
The 8 page PDF file is broken down as follows:
Pgs 1 - 2: Epicac Quiz
Pgs 3 - 4: Quiz Answer Key
Pg 5: Epicac Prereading Questions
Pg 6: A few youtube links to discussion extensions that I like to share with my students when I'm going over the Prereading Questions. They include self-driving cars and life-like robots. Naturally, these will become outdated relatively quickly!
Pg 7: Epicac short letter writing activity
Pg 8: An example of the short letter for the students.
