Use this assignment to encourage students to reflect on their own idea of the universe. In chapter 13 Steven has been asked the following question by his English teacher, “If you could pick one word in the English language to describe the universe, what would it be?”
Steven chooses the word, UNFAIR.
Students are asked to imagine that they are also a student in Steven’s English class and have also been asked to describe the universe in 1 word.
Students are asked to write an extended response. "What word would you choose and why? Be sure to support your word choice with as many examples as Steven did."
