For this lesson, I had my students compare the views of Morrie Schwartz and Randy Pausch. Randy Pausch is the author of the novel "Last Lecture". Instead of reading his novel, however, my class watched Pausch's last lecture that he gave at Carnegie Melon. For this assignment, students are to compare the men's views on life, death, family, goals, etc. They will use direct quotes from the novel Tuesdays with Morrie, and ideas seen in the lecture. At the end of the lesson, they will write a cumulative paragraph on the similarities and differences between the men.
