This list contains ten writing prompts that are appropriate for a one- or two-page paper on The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. The prompts could be also used as the basis for a small-group discussion or an in-class activity, or they could be included on a test. I wrote these prompts when I was chair of my university’s freshman summer reading program, in the year that our entire freshman class read The Kite Runner. Every freshman had to write a one-page response to one of these ten prompts. The prompts, which touch on theme, character, and ending, are suitable for high school students or developmental college reading students.
