This activity has nine multi-part discussion questions for chapter I of Steinbeck's The Pearl. The questions cover such topics as characters/characterization, the use of parable, the motif of songs, the stratification of society, and theme. The activity is designed to be used by small groups or the whole class as the basis of discussion, but the teacher could also have students complete the questions individually following the reading of the chapter.
